I just purchased a 1998 440 Express. I've found a ton of knowledge and info on this forum, and I'm glad my registration finally went through so I can post!

I'll be having it trucked about 350 miles, from St Paul MN to Milwaukee. The trucking company is telling me that the radar arch can stay up, we just need to take everything off of the arch. The seller says it's like 3 bolts on each side, and actually easier to take the arch down.

It's all intersate from both locations, and I believe the lowest bridge clearance is 15' 10".

Any feedback from anyone else whos shipped this before?

Can't wait to get the boat, just in time for winter storage! LOL

I had mine shipped from Florida to NY, had to have the arch removed.

Welcome to the wonderful world of 440 ownership!

Is your boat the one with Cummins QMS 635's?

Yeah, I did a lot of research on them. The current owner had it re-proped, and the fuel curves look great. He has tons of records on service, and the boat is in real good shape.

This will be my first boat, but, I've grown up on boats and feel real comfortable with this Trojan.

I'm sure I'll have questions for you all next spring!
