Need some ideas for a swing keel cradle...
Yesterday, I removed the trailer out from under my South Coast 22 project sailboat with the help of a floor jack and a bunch of blocks. Now I need to remove the swing keel so that I can refinish it.
I was wondering if anyone had any ideas of how I should "catch" the keel when I drop it out of the boat. I want to build a cradle to hold the keel pretty much. I have access to plenty of 2x4's to use. I would like the cradle to be able to be moved pretty easily, I think. Maybe I could just drag it wherever it needs to go (not far, just around the house). The bottom of the hull is about 2.5 feet off the ground.
I have googled it and found a few things but nothing that really helped, so I figured I would pick everyone's brains and see if they had any excellent ideas.
Small is beautiful, simple, cheap, and easy......
