Cradle for GK29 - family cruiser version

Post by Hardover »

Does anyone have any idea of the critical dimensions of a yacht cradle suitable for a GK29 or indeed have one for sale. I'm planning ahead for the end of the 2018 season :)

Can't help you with dimensions, but have you seen these boat stands? http://boatgeardirect.co.uk/boat-stands
A fellow club member made his own copies for a Benetau. It's a much shorter stub keel with lifting plate, but the stands are really stable when chained together. He pegs his down for extra security. I think they work out cheaper than a full cradle.

The Royal Northumberland Yacht Club seem to use those. I wonder what size I would need - presumably the larger of the 3 models?

You might have got one sorted now but I saw this earlier:
