The multi-functional arch we designed and built for Prima prior to the voyage.
Have boat will travel. Old NM rodeo truck turns yacht hauler.
A new trailering experience for us. Prima was not exactly a normal haul.
Even getting fuel was challenging to find stations tall enough to get under. 11.6 foot wide and just under 13 foot tall.
The inside rearview mirror missed the boat, and we could only see the keel and trailer.
Even the commercial trucks gave us a wide berth!
