All for nought.

I called the marina and talked with the only yard-man. He made a good point that he's often lifting and setting boats alone and lacks the equipment to drag even parts of collapsing or break-down cradles and, as often as not, the owners don't show up for their actual pull date/time. Have to drop the mast to use the full-box lift there anyway so the cradles don't offer that advantage.

The good news is that I went back to the yard that will be worknig on the boat over the winter and they've agreed to arrange a "loaner" that I can lease for the winter.

Thanks all. That Lowi looks like a good cradle.
