JOWI Sailboat Support Systems...

These cradles are specified for and used worldwide by navies, boat yards, the US Coast Guard Academy, yacht clubs, and top boat builders such as Eric Goetz Custom Sailboats, Carroll Marine, and Concordia Yachts.

About JOWI Cradles
We build six sizes of cradles - their individual specifications are listed below. The right cradle for your boat is generally determined by displacement. The cradle can be adjusted to any hull shape, and the vertical tubes can be sized for any draft. At one time or another, we have cradled most of the modern sailboats and have all of the dimensions on file, so we can help with the exact tube lengths for your boat.
There are a few exceptions, such as some of the lightweight high performance sport boats that can have a rather deep draft in relation to displacement and length. An example of picking which cradle: Say your boat is 29 feet long, displaces 7,200 pounds with a 4 and a half foot draft, the Model 1 is the obvious choice. It has a capacity of 10,000 pounds and can accomodate 30 feet of hull length. Now, say your boat is 40 feet long, 7,200 pounds in displacement and 7 and a half feet in draft. The Model 1 is clearly too short, so we may suggest a Model 2.
All models have flat black enamel finish and 2" X 8" pressure-treated keel boards as standard equipment. Galvanized finishes are available optionally. Custom cradles, wheels, and modifications are available.
