Arctic 22 does it fit in a shipping container?

Hi

I have sourced an Arctic 22 and looking to ship it home(it's going to be a project). Container would probably be easiest in my mind.

Was wondering if anyone has anyone done this before.

Arctic's are 2.54 meters wide (including inflated sponsons) a container is 2.35 meters wide. I presume it would fit if the sponsons were deflated for transport.

If anyone has any info would be great.

Thanks
Ross

Yes it will. Some few years ago a friend of mine called Arek Pawelek ( Arek used to post here ) shipped one in a 40Ē container to Chile and took the rib round Horn . I will have to do a search but I remember he send me some photos from the trip and when the rib was packed inside the container. The tubes had to be deflated.
