My name is Mark McCracken, I have ordered a set of Bo Jest plans and expect to start later this year on hull construction. PLans have not arrived yet. Do the plans include cradle building information?

I doubt they will. None of the plans i have seen so far have details on.makimg a cradle. There are a few threads in this forum with discussion on building a cradle..that may be the best source for ideas.
I am just about to that point in my build...im not quite sure how I'm going to do it... will have to wing it to some degree.

Lots of folks flip the boat onto a trailer and finish from there. However, if you decide to build a cradle it will be a fairly simple task once you get to the point of needing one.

Unless you are talking about the building form. In that case, yes it will be detailed in the plans.

On my Tahoe I didn't need a cradle. I put it right on the trailer. I built a cradle for the Bartender which was slightly larger than the frames.
