Default What are these called?

The triangular stands that people set boats on...what is the technical name for them? I want to search for some (preferably with wheels) but I don't know what to search by...

Are you talking about a ''cradle''? If it has wheels, I believe that it would be refered to as a ''dolly''.

Around here we call them shoring stands. Some attach to a railroad tie, some have legs.
But we don't put wheels under them or our boats will fall down. There is pressure to the outsides when you use these stands on a V bottom. The weight is carried on an angle. People usually even put wood down in stones so that the stands don't creep outward over time.
They're good for painting bottoms, because you can move them around and get the whole hull.
Hope that helps.

That outward press. always scares me so I run a strap across the two opposing each other to hold them in.

Ok, got it! Like, Duh, they're called "boat stands". http://www.boatstands.com/ These guys were super helpful. Although they didn't have what I was looking for (portability) they pointed me to two of their competators who do carry the items I wanted. http://yardarm.com/marine_products/m...lly_system.htm http://www.hostarmarine.com/dollies/index.htm
