Simple yacht cradle for a SR 5.4 ?

Most of the time it will sleep on the trailer but occasionally would need to keep it on a cradle also. Plan to make a simple one of wood/timber, anyone here done the same? Preliminary idea to do it in a two piece style, one larger/wider close to the stern and a small one closer to the bow.

Pictures /ideas would be highly appreciated. Thanks

Not a bad price I had to do something instantly( hurry to get trailer MOt inspected) so
fabricated something of leftover bits and pieces. Not beautiful but worked ok.

Little harder to drop the boat on the "cradle" single-handed but taking it up on the trailer again was smooth. Cradle was a couple of cm lower than the position of the keel when on trailer.
