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:
Jowi sailboat cradle

Finding a cradle with wheels might be difficult.

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.
