Neat Boat Trailer

I was driving down the highway the other day and saw what appeared to be a sailboat being delivered (based on a sign on the truck). I knew it was a sailboat, but I couldn't figure out why they would have the lionshare of the boat well above the roof line of the truck. Turns out, the centerboard (is it?) was that tall.

Just thought it was pretty interesting to see.

I have seen these before while traveling and they do move some big ones. I will bet that these are tricky to haul since you have moved the center of gravity up so high.
