Shipping cradle/trailer

Greetings, I'm looking into the feasibility of shipping our Ketch to HI where I live, and looking for a cradle or trailer in the Los Angeles area. Ketch weighs 6.5 ton. any info or advise about this would be very appreciated. Thanks

Re: Shipping cradle/trailer

Welcome to CF!

When shipping a boat via ship, it's not uncommon for the shippers to weld the jackstands supporting the boat to the deck. This, in addition to securing them via more normal methods. As well as securing the boat in place via tie downs (using various methods & materials for this). And this is so that the vessel can't move around, plus it assists in keeping her vertical.
