To save money we removed the upper helm and prepped our 410 for transport.
Saved me about 8000 bucks.
Then we put bottom paint on it and a new swim platform.
If anyone needs advise we know how to do it.
I’ll post a bunch of pics.
It’s not too hard but you need to know a few tricks to make it go faster.
On my phone and don’t see a way to do pics now.

Thanks for sharing, you have answered my question about having to remove the pilot house windows. I've removed a bridge for transport. How difficult was it to take the pilot house apart. It's a big job on both ends of the move, but you are paying yourself 8K for your time and effort. 

OMG I can help you so so much.. you already took the top off and left windows???? I have a lot of pics I can send you.. I would like to send via text.. I can send you about 100 photos.. I documented everything


Hi Karee, I have not bought a boat yet, but a 410 Commander is the likely choice. I removed the bridge on my previous boat when I bought it in 2005, it was a 38 Sedan Bridge.  The photos would be a great resource for future people, they may scare them off, ha ha. I wonder if there is a way to place them in a gallery here on the CCCC site?

karee, I have my 410 commander for sale but it is not selling and it is a great boat so I thinking of moving from Wisconsin to North Carolina. Can you email me jalebout@hotmail.com or text me all your pictures, documents and instructions. I would really appreciate
my phone is 920-378-5233. Thanks

Wisconsin to North Carolina would be a great trip by water....

John will text you and if you need to talk by phone will help you all i can


I responded to your thread about the holding tank - but have a very similar boat - a 1980 Commander 410.

I heard from a trucking company last week that it is possible to just remove the helm from the flybridge, and that once the helm is removed, that the hard top, and windows would clear 17' loaded on a truck.

Did you consider just removing the helm and leaving the base / hardtop in place?  (I'm assuming that would have been an obvious option - and probably not enough??

How much did the flybridge way?  Did you have to employ a crane to remove it?

I'm really curious about this, as I will have to do the same thing to move my boat anywhere.




Clearance of 17' is fine for Interstate Highways. Getting to and from the highway would be a problem. Secondary power lines have minimum clearance of 16' and communication cables 15.5'. These lines often sag over time and can be even lower.
