I am hoping to launch in the summer, but the boat is too big for the boatyards cradle. The preferred method is to reverse a low loader under it and chock it on, and then take it the short way to the slip and let the tide float it. Pictures of cats on low loaders would be much appreciated in my quest to get this sorted. Any advice would be welcome. The boat is in West Wales at Borth just north of Aberystwyth.

Cranes work well.

Hi Robin, you buy the "wombi zombie" ? Roll up the logs...I use eucalipitus log with mud lubrification.

Cranes are expensive and can put unnecessary stress on the boat and I have the rig up. I'm on a budget too!

Yep this is his boat. The yard were going to bulldoze the bank and we were going to do this again, but it caused a lot of stress to the boat and with bulldozing and rollers it'll be costly.

It's "Wowie Zowie" but I do like "Wombie Zombie" - my son would go crazy for that name! Yours looks good or epic as my son would say, but I have to move mine to the slip or bulldoze the bank behind me. A lorry seems the best solution to me so far....
