Recently I found a company (that also happened to be in Durango, CO) that can do a great job with shipping smaller kayaks. I shipped my playboat with them and they had door to door delivery and also very competitive prices. They can ship anywhere in the US. Their website is www.sportsexpress.com
and I will use them again in the future when buying/selling/traveling with my boats. Hope some of ya'll make it out on the Animas this week, it is sicko!!
