How a mobile slip cradle can be used instead of a hired boat trailer

As you can see in the images the Monterey has great access to the hull area making it easy for restorations or other maintenance work to be done. This is one example, but Slip Away You could even have your boat moved to different places to then have the engine worked on, cabin etc.
