Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] shipping across U.S. by truck, east to west

I bet you could get more than a few experienced Amel owners who would be willing to crew on a delivery. Alway more fun on someone else's Amel!

We are planning to truck our Maramu to Washington State. 

Has anyone had experience decommissioning an Amel for truck hauling?

Particularly, what is the best method to un-wire the mainsail furlling motor and outhaul motor and remove the wires?

Is it best to disconnect the wires from the solenoids in the forward head and pull them up and out of the boat and mast, or is it best to disconnect the wires from the motors and pull them down and out of the mast?

Any other decommissioning suggestions and tips would be appreciated.
