Re: Moving 25 foot sailboat across Michigan
We bought a powerboat trailer and then had a welder who was a sailor help us customize it into a sailboat trailer.
I would think that getting a boat on a cradle on and off of a flatbed trailer would get clumsy and really old after several iterations, and might have some extra hazards. However, if you'll be storing the boat in a boat yard or dry storage lot that has a launching crane adjacent to the water, and if your boat just happens to be set up for crane launching and isn't too heavy, that could maybe work.
