Cradle fit
 
I'm looking to buy a cradle for my Bristol 27. Any tips on how to specific the cradle dimentions need to be? Is it important that the pads land on bulkheads for example?

IMHP JOWI has the universal cradle down to a science

Its kind of funny because on Long Island cradles are petty much banned :) in favor of jack-stands

I agree with tommays. A JOWI cradle is the way to go. Used them for years before my club switched to stands.

Really? I figured it would be easier to have the boat trucked to another location in the future with a cradle rather than stands. Does having a cradle even help make shipping easier (or less expensive)? If not maybe it would be simpler to just get stands.

If you are interested, I have a very robust 4 post, steel cradle for my boat, that I am not using and would like to sell. Its currently in Sturgeon Bay, WI. Send me a PM if interested and I can get some pics and measurements for you.
