I need to move 2 or maybe 3 Waves from Florida to South Jersey on one trailer. Do they stack easily?
With 3 would you recommend disassembling them and stacking them like cordwood (lengthwise) on a flatbed?
If I stacked them 3 high assembled would the bottom one support the weight of the two on top?

Rick White would turn the bottom boat upside down then the next one with one hull inside and the other outside. The third go's on top but I don't remember which way it lays. The less wind on it the better.

This sounds good. Since the Wave is only 7 feet wide, overlapping inverted hulls would only be 8 feet wide and I can use a standard cat trailer skeleton to build a Rick White flatbed. If I split the masts I could build a rack to hold the 6 pieces in the hole between the bottom nested boats and the whole rig would be quite short and low. The weight of 3 boats would be about 750 pounds so I'll have to think about spring capacity and use large wheels and tires. This could work.
