Cradle for a Bayfield 29

Can anyone give me some measurements on a cradle for a Bayfield 29. I need to build one for winter storage.

I am going to be shipping the boat in a few months and someone told me they need the cradle to ship so they could put the cradle and boat on the trailer together. Is that typical?

Thanks

The use of a cradle for shipping is fairly common. Some transporters use a Brownell Hydraulic Lift Trailer that dispenses with a cradle. When we shipped out boat, a 28-foot, six-ton cutter, we sold out cradle for $50 to the boatyard since our transporter had a Brownell.

Thanks for the shipping info. I'm going to need the cradle for winter storage no matter what so it is just a matter of getting one before or after shipping.

jskrypek ....

Do you own a Bayfield 29? If so, would you care to comment on it?

I looked at one today (very briefly) and I'd like to know more about them.

I don't own one but am waiting on a survey to make a purchase. There is an active yahoo group that has plenty of information. Seems like a fine boat. Little small for a 29' but excellent construction.

Thanks, js

I've since done a little bit of web research; and your impression seems to be a common one. I might take a closer look at the one I walked by yesterday.
