Width of cradle
« on: June 07, 2021, 08:07:07 AM »

My boat yard limits cradle width to 7' No jack stands allowed.

Is there a typical cradle width?

I believe the owners manual shows the cradle and dimensions?

Tmac: If you are a MK 1 C34??  the width of the stern cradle width is 7' 8" .  Ref : page 5.2 of your owners manual.

Hmmmm. I'll have to measure the cradle of the C34 that was in front of me this winter. Either that sets a precedent or they will have grandfathered it in.

TMAC : It makes no sense to limit the width of a cradle, because the width of any sail boat is wider than the cradle!!!  Best recheck the Yards requirements!

BTW, do you have a Mk1 or II ???   Hull number??
