Ken, i never had the cradle.  well, i did but only for one store.  the rest of the time it was illegally held by westport marina in canada.

the yard said they are fixing it and i sent them the drawing of the cradle which i didn't realize i had, again, because i never thought to look for it since i never had the cradle all these years.

what i didn't take a picture of was the over 1 inch thick sheet of ice in the cockpit

I will.  I'm just bummed out they won't fix it.  I don't want to move (and soon, before our river freezes)

it's hard to measure and hard to see in the pictures but i did get all the water out of the cockpit, at least what was there.  there will be some water coming in, from the cover not being 100% solid.

i'm not certain if my boat is backwards or just bow down, in the cradle but it's not right.  this is the cradle the boat came with, from Catalina (which I just got back, after years, from a marina in Canada) but the yard I took it to, for storage, is all new people (new ownership after a bankruptcy) and the bow is down.  how much damage could this cause my boat?  i did put the cover on, got all the ice and water out of the cockpit, beforehand, and took a turkey baster to the front of the bilge, and took out the bilge plug out.  how much possible damage could the boat, being bow down and/or backwards in the cradle, be looking at?

thanks

well, i blew up the bladder under my aft cabin bed so i guess i don't need that to be vented (but they should fix it anyway!)

it seems the yard bent 90 degrees my mid ship starboard stanchion, in setting my boat.  i can't remember if it's vented or not (and i can't get there until tonight to look).  if it's vented, on hull 99, 1986, what is it vented to?  it's just over the galley.  thanks

is water in the bilge bad, seeing what is in there?  or no?  i seem to get different answers like everything else with boat ownership. and thanks

hmm, they were too big to upload and then when i used apple->previewer, they were renamed as .heic so i thought i could just rename them.  i'll try gimp. thanks for telling me.

btw, i drained the bilge last tuesday with a turkey baster and checked back on saturday.  there was no new water, or not significant enough to notice so i don't think it's the keel bolts, but i'll tighten them anyway when she's out, and it can't be the water tank since it's empty.
