Yeah the only problem with that is that I want to be able to ramp launch it so I don't have to fool around with a lift.

And yes I would like to be able to store it on the trailer for winter. The local company charges 600 for haul out and back to storage and the same to put her back in

Filmsomething--

The fact that they had to make a cradle and a non-launching trailer had a lot more to do with the fact that they were making it for an etchells, which is a fixed keel boat with fairly significant draft than with the fact that it was being hand-made. You could use the same techniques to make one that could be used for launching a boat, provided the boat is one that is suitable for trailer launching.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

good point, just weld on a cradle to a flat bed trailer, wont be perfect but it should do the job

I'd make the cradle a bolt on, rather than weld it directly to the trailer frame. The trailer will be much more versatile that way.
