Need a cradle that rolls in Brooklyn

Any advice on finding a used or new cradle with wheels for a 25' 4700 pound sailboat? Needed to store for the winter at my club in Brooklyn. Thanks for any help.

This one is probably already sold:

Re: Need a cradle that rolls in Brooklyn

when my nimble 30 express is hoisted out of the water they put it on my 12,000 lb capacity 6 wheel trailer & i bring it home. it stays on the trailer all winter. i don't have to bother with a cradle.

I also built a triple axle trailer and I take my Ericson 32 home with me in the winter. No storage fees and I can work on it whenever I want. Definitely not for everyone because it is a big undertaking but it is certainly worthwhile if you can pull it off.

You should be able to find a used cradle at any large marina. The one by me has dozens available. Not too many with wheels but if it is built right you could easily have them added.

krazz - i didn't have to build mine. when i bought the boat from the owner it came with the galvanized steel trailer. the trailer cost him $6,000 new. i was happy to get it.
