Hi all,

I need to move a 22 foot full keel boat around 400 miles. I'm having trouble getting a boat moving service to fuss with the job. I do have access to a solid flatbed trailer though. I'm considering moving the boat with a cradle on the flatbed, bit only if it can be done safely.

Part of the process, is figuring out the cradle design that is solid, then will that structure fit on the trailer...then will the loads be ok.

I've seen plenty of wooden cradles are boat yards, never really focusing on them. Google search does not turn up much for wood boat cradles, unless baby beds count!

Does anyone have any plans or good images of a well made wooden cradle for a boat?
