Greasing the Skids

Greasing the skids.

The next step is to secure the cradle with a line to a deadman at the top of the slip-way. This is to ensure that the cradle does not move as it is lowered. Grease is applied to the bottom of the cradle, and with the help of a jack, the cradle is raised enough to remove the blocking, and then lowered to the skidway.
