Here is an example of using a mobile slip cradle instead of a boat trailer.  This Monterey 270 Cruiser Boat was restored by Adam Hayter Shipwrights in Gosford. We picked up the boat from the ramp, transported it to Adam’s shipyard and returned it to the water a few weeks later. The Monterey as you can see in the images has great access to the hull area making it easy for restorations or other maintenance work to be done on the boat like anti-fouling. You could even have your boat moved to different places to then have the engine worked on, cabin etc.
