Default RV-4 shipping from Hawaii to Mainland

I'm considering buying a RV-4 currently based in Hawaii and having it shipped over to the states. Can anyone share any experience they have had with breaking down, packing, and shipping a RV-4

Thank you
Rick Forster

Give my buddy Brad Neel a call. He's shipped airplanes all over the world for me, does it for a living and is good at it.
Breaking down and shipping an RV isn't too difficult. Brad can help with that also.

Brad packaged my RV-4 up and shipped it to the Netherlands. Here it is coming off the crate over there.
