Once again, great work! I recently got a large item shipped by Greyhound. It wasn't this large but much more inexpensive than USPS, UPS and Fed Ex. You have to pick the item up at the nearest station but it dosen't get handled as much as with the shipping companies and often faster too! I was very happy dealing with them and since I buy some large and fragile things on ebay, will try to have them shipped this way more. It's worth a call. Good luck, Laney

Guys around the lakes have had 8'+ longboards shipped on Amtrack for a fair price... have to drop them off and pick them up at stations though...

Some smaller freight haulers may be reasonable... RPS isn't too bad... had a surfboard shipped by them once...

Great work on the tiki... love 'em 5 foot and bigger!

How heavy is he?

thanks, for the info ,and props L Surfer.this Tiki does weigh a good amount .definately over 250 lbs ,and it is close to completely dry .I've carved hundreds of palmwood tikis, and some of the palmwood 3 footers that we dont sell quickly, tend to get to the point that you can literally pick them up with one hand after a while .this guy has lightened up a bit but still very heavy when he was first finished it weighed over 350 lbs!! I needed all the help I could find to move him around ,one time he started to fall foward and trying to catch em,I nearly was stabbed by one of those "un-patented" Kreepy tiki Teeth (Irony).and made it out with only a minor scratch across ma belly..he isup on ebay now maybe some local will come pick em up, or if anyone here wants em and can pick em up at the Hukilau I will Take em out there.
Tanks, Jaksin
