I just bought a Tiger and have to pick it up. I need to know the width to set the cradles on my trailer to pick it up. ??

Thanks

Just as a temp fix to get it home you can set the cradles on the rollers.

On my trailer I use the Hobie 20 cradles, with carpet at the bottom to achieve a better fit. If you are also going to use the H20 cradles, I can provide measurements from my trailer tomorrow evening. However, if the cross arms on your trailer are further apart, you might end up with the cradles at different widths.

Beware: The dealer and I spent a lot of time on a hot August afternoon attaching the brackets based on measurement of the distance between the hulls, but then I had to move them to get them to support the hulls evenly.
