Building the cradle Part One

We searched the web for specs on Alberg 30 cradles and boats. The previous owners also sent us some pictures of the vessel on the trailer and provided some additional measurements. We designed a cradle to fit atop and inside of our existing hydraulic trailer.

The steel was ordered and Gary (pictured below) purchased a new band saw for the shop to be used for cutting the steel. Did I mention I have the greatest boss and friend anyone could hope for? Well I do!

Today after our regular work day was completed at the shop. We stayed "after hours" and began cutting the steel for the cradle (thats me in the picture). Tomorrow we'll complete the cutting then we'll spend a few hours a night over the next few nights and get the cradle welded together.
