Cradle for Westsail 32

I'm looking to replace my stands with a boat cradle.

I have no experience shopping around for one.

How will I know if a cradle will fit my boat and is strong enough to handle the westsail 32?

I'm considering the used market because of cost

Thanks for any input !

Re: Cradle for Westsail 32

Unless you measure your boat stations and offsets and measure the cradle you wont know. Most anything close can work as you can put planks under the keel when lifting the boat into the cradle and shim the contact points with wedges etc.
