Help!
Shipping from CA to CT - need someone to move a JClass sailboat

HELP - I need someone who will already be making a trip from the LA area (Riverside) in CA to Mystic CT (or any where near hear) and can add to their shipping a J-Class sailboat.
It will be in a crate that is about 24" x 24" x 9'-6" long. I can help pay for gas.
I am in no hurry so anytime in the next week to Christmas time is fine.
I can drive a few hours or so to where ever they can get it to.
Thank you for any assistance or thoughts on the subject.

Greyhound is often a surprising option:

Having a 6' box (or so) and a 9' tube might be easier to handle assuming the mast is taller than the boat is long..

Max for Greyhound is 83". LA to Hartford would be about $75 for that size box.

Too bad the J won't fit in that size box.
