Hi all, I am looking for a Cradle/Yard trolley/Road trailer for a lifting keel (or a fin, I could adapt it) Sonata. If you have one you are selling or you know of one that is for sale or has been sat round the yard/sailing club etc for a while, please contact me. I am in a bit of a rush to get, as the Sonata I am hoping to buy has ot got one, and I need to move it by the 10th of December if I buy it. I have looked at the cost of a new yard trolley £560+vat , road trailer £1400+vat and cradle £350+vat. Ouch, too expensive for me ! I am also looking at making one if none are available second hand. There is one message on this board that mentions plans for one, but I have not had a reply to the email as yet. If I get this Sonata, I will also need some help with setting up rigging (generally the finer points of setting up spinnaker lines and reefing system), so are there any owners who keep their boats near (50-100mile radius) to Manchester? Thanks for your indulgence, ’tis a long post, this one !

My Sonata is presently at home in Cuddington 25 miles from Manchester. If you want any help give me a ring. I also have a drawing of a trailer if this will help.
