AFTER and ready for sailing.

Problem solved!!!!!

Here are the photos. One from before when we had straps on our lift, the other is the new platform. I purchased the trailer cradles and had them attached to the platform. The aluminum walkways on either side are great. The cover is a lightweight Car cover with UV protection. It has elastic around the bottom making it like a fitted sheet. It fits perfectly with the rudder down.

I collect my gear together, ready the boat, get in and lower the platform with a remote. Then I sail away... Really cool. Now I just need some clear weather and wind.

Let me know if you cannot see the photos. I used the method that Keith suggested for photos, but of course I did it a little different.

Thanks again for all of the suggestions.
Brenda

Photo, are fine. Looks good! Just be sure you install/remove the Mirage Drives away from your platform. 8)

Yes, I pull the drive and the dagger board out as I approach the platform. I have them "leashed" to the boat so I do not loose them. :lol:
