Did anyone ever tried some other kind of supports rather than the Hobie
cradles for the TI on a trailer ? I know i will need good support because i will leave it on the trailer all the time in summer season.

Thanks

Richard

A friend of mine has suggested simply using a couple longitudinal boards (e.g., 2x4x8 or 10 feet) running one on each side of the hull.
