Cradle Plans / Blueprints

I'm wondering if anyone knows of any plans/blueprints to build a steel sailboat cradle. Seeing my boat is 35ft I would imagine i would need a 6 post cradle.

I've searched but couldn't find any. I know Gord May is good at finding things like this.

Thanks everyone!!

If you want I can go measure up mine. I have two boats, ones a 31ft full keel on a 4post cradle, the other is a 38ft fin keel on a 4 post cradle.

What sort of boat are you building it for? There are 165 boats at the club, perhaps your make is one of them. I can go measure that too if you like. Also how fast do you need the info?

I'll bet he's enquiring for a Hughes 35.

I'd put the (4) support legs at or about the bulkhead locations.
