Re: Converting swing board trailer to wing keel trailer?
I was more thinking a steel cradle. You should be able to pick up a used steel sailboat cradle for a 26' sail boat pretty easily. Especially somewhere like San Francisco.
Not that easy: https://sfbay.craigslist.org/search/...radle&sort=rel
Plus the little 1300 mile distance thing...
EDIT: With the 3/4 ton truck with 488 and 4WD and 37" tires...that is almost ideal for launching 4' draft sailboats with the Extended Tongue. Seems that only ~10% of ramps are suitable for deep keel launches though.
