www.containermarketing.com
www.transoceancontainers.net

either of those sites should have what you're looking for.. 45' isn't really that rare.. but most 45' ers are refridgerated but you can find them bare. Call someone at either of those sites and talk to a rep, they can find you one or at least get you in touch with someone who can deliver one to you.. What about heigth though, what boat are you shipping?

I've been told a boat won't fit, too wide, but check it out yourself. They do make great storage bins. Here on the left coast there are thousands of them piled up in Long Beach/LA Harbor. Seems everything is coming in, nothing going out.
