I need to make a decision very soon about when Ravat will be hauled out for the winter. On one hand, I want to enjoy every remaining minute of sailing I can squeeze in. On the other hand, pretty soon I will have all the fall yard work bearing down on me in addition to the project of figuring out how I will tarp the boat with the lifelines up and mast up. That's not much fun in driving cold wind, so I might enjoy using some warm weather for that work.
If I decide my cradle is truly not appropriate, then I will definitely rent a cradle from the Yard. It's $175 for the season, which means I could rent from them for 13 years and still come out ahead of the costs of having them make a new cradle.
