Does anyone know where we can get a box and some bubble wrap? We got this sailboat and have to figure out how to get it home. Thanks!!!

Boy that will take alot of bubble wrap and a really big box to wrap a sailboat. smile





Oh wait, maybe you mean a carving not the kind you actually sail on.

Sorry couldn't resist. laugh Please don't hate me.

I believe there is at least one store that sells office type supplies and they probably have bubble wrap. I will ask Tacogirl because she knows what store I am talking about. Then she can post here which store and where it is located.

I would give Caye Supply a try (on back street).

Gailtor- Our first worry was the bubble wrap and the box, our next concern is how we will fit it in the overhead compartment on the plane....or find a sailing route from here to Colorado wink

It is a wood carving, but we did not bring a bag that it will fit in. Thank you everyone for suggestions. We will try Caye supply tomorrow.

LOL at kmahany smile Tough to find a sailing route to CO.

Yes, that's the place I was thinking of JZB.. Caye Supply.

Another suggestion is shipping it. I know that Orange regularily ships large items so it can be done. But then it becomes a question of cost.

Good luck.

Stab in the dark here BCB but let me guess that it is near an ice cream store? And thank you as I now have a craving for ice cream at 10AM now!


But why eat my vegetables I already know that I am short!

A $10 backpack and carry on would be a good alternative?


It's rarely rocket science, it's usually just math: then again if you can't do the math.......
