Re: Soft Sole Replacement

Thanks guys, I did buil it myself to custom fit the boat...

Being on the large size for a trailer sailer and more of a "transportable boat" I wanted something substantial to carry, hold and store the boat on so I came up with this...

Pulls like a dream with my half ton Chevy, and launchs like a 15' aluminumboat at the ramp.... 20 minutes and by myself...same with loading and pulling it out...

I'm in and out of there before the big stinkpot drivers finish yelling at their wife on how to back up a trailer...

"Might as well take 'er out...If anything is gonna happen...It's gonna happen out there..."

Re: Soft Sole Replacement

It looks more substantial than most boatyard cradles.

Maybe a few lightning holes in those beam webs? That would really make it look "techy".

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: Soft Sole Replacement

Nice work, squidd. On both the sole and the trailer.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:
