So I am selling my OEM bimini from my Outback to a fellow Moomba owner. I have broke the bimini down as far as it will go - but unfortunately the main beams that go across the cabin of the boat are one piece so they are quite big.
Does anyone have any experiences shipping one of these? How did you do it? I am thinking I have two options. The first is trying to source a box that is roughly this size. The only thing I can think of that is even close is maybe a really wide door for a home. THe other option is to wrap it with packaging foam and then packaging tape and send it with no box.
The item will be shipped USPS from Minnesota to Manitoba so it is International.
Does anyone have any experiences or ideas? If I go without a box - do you think I should add a piece of metal to the cross bar for added reinforcement to the structure? Or should I be Ok as long as everything is padded and securely fastened?
Thoughts? Advice? Thanks!
