Cradle Parts

I''m looking for a source for adjustable (screw type) poppits to make a cradle for out Tartan 30. Either new or used. Will consider a used cradle somewhere in New England. Thanks Jim

Not sure if boat stands will serve your purpose; if not, they will sell you individual components for building your cradle.

I bought a set of stands from Brownell in Mattapoisett, MA 9 years ago for my last boat, drove there and saved a bundle . . . couldn''t believe the mark-up through West Marine. They''re the best around and sole-supplier to most yards and resellers in this country.

Jim,
I am getting ready to build a cradle for my Tartan 30 but I don't have any dimensions yet. I was wondering if you might have a design that your marina uses. The boat mover I use gave me a footprint of 5 1/2 ft wide by 12 ft long using 6 in. C channel. That sounds a bit short and narrow to me.

The reason for the Narrow dimension is so that your boat mover can get on each side of your cradle and lift it up. Some movers use a U-Shaped Hydralic trailer that will pick the cradle and boat up as one piece.

Becareful of making the cradle to wide, if the boat ever needs to be hauled over the road a cradle that is 7' wide won't work with the trailers that the movers use. Just my 2 cents.

I would strongly suggest that you find another T 30 that is out of the water so you can take measurements. You need to determine where your pads are going to be, (on the bulkheads) and then the width of your cradle. Drop a string down from where the centre of the pad will be and measure the height of the upright.

Then do you need to angle the pad in? You have to be pretty exact, within a inch or two or you will have a very long adjustment.

Generally people just use threaded rod. You will need at least 1 inch rod, 1 1/4" is better. And if it is bare carbon steel then put some Never Seize or similar on it the threads. Your life will be simpler if you buy the adjustable pads from a manufacturer.
