I can certainly fit 18 and I believe I can fit 36 (I'll try tomorrow.)
If 36 do not fit (safely) then I'll look into the next best (best being
cheapest but safest) option.

We can purchase more insurance if we want to.  It's just that $50 is
included in the base price.

Yes, if I receive all the boards then it makes sense to ship all
together.  I'm sure the boards won't fit in a priority mail small box so
we'll have to revisit when they arrive.  If just shipping boards then
I'll probably ship in padded envelopes but will use a box if shipping
boards and connectors.
