Cradle for boats shipping,free plans for building a playhouse,woodwork forums south africa - Review
We like to use STEEL cradles for boats up to 50' (15.25m), 40000 Lbs (18000 Kgs), and all of our container cradles. Our container cradles are offered on a per boat basis when used in a shipment originated at our facility in Charlotte, NC. We are now the very first company to offer "Completely Adjustable Steel Cradles" made specifically for containerized Tilt-Pak and Stack-Pak shipping.
All Marine Point steel cradles are fabricated using modern MIG welding techniques with Top of Line equipment and certified welders making sure every cradle produced is built to perfection. The Yamaha 175-HP engine is a 1992 model--the boat could do with extra HP--so I want to move up to 250-HP when I replace the current outboard.
On a sadder note they market a "Aussie Whaler" down here which is a very bad copy of a Boston Whaler hull form with a terrible fit out.
Blair built this unique plywood cradle to tilt the Walk-Around 21 for entry into the shipping container.
With the boat on its custom cradle, clearance for the shipping container is carefully checked. Blair met the ship at the dock and got the boat out of the container and back on its trailer. All the planning, effort, and expense of shipping pays off when you can use your Boston Whaler to explore beautiful waters like these.
It was carefully wrapped in protective plastic, and stored against the topsides of the boat.
The boat was designed under the supervision of Peter Van Lancker and utilized a new hull form.
