Cradle Building

A sound cradle is critical to maintaining QCYC’s marine railway as an efficient, safe and economical means of hauling and storing members’ boats. To assist prospective newcomers to the system, the yard has provided a downloadable document that discusses various aspects of cradles. The document is intended as a primer to be used in planning a cradle for use on the QCYC marine railway.

Maintaining a cradle and butter boards is essential for safety during launch and haulout. Check the documents below to note the work necessary for your cradle.
