: Picture 1: Can we get more info on the cart (Wheels), I hate to spend $100 on
: a cart. I built my boat I ought to be able to build a decent cart. I built
: the one from CLC using their plans and find it to be unusable when loaded
: with all my gear. The wheels need to be bigger and located at the CG of
: the boat. The higher the better as it's easier to pull when up high.

Nice pictures, Ted. Thanks. Hope to see you and Holly again on the next South Sound trip.

As far as a cart is concerned it is very easy to build your own. Get a aluminum rod, cut it as long as you need it. Put a rubber V in the center (bought at any boat supply store, add two wheels of your choice, put on straps, drill holes for
cotter pins to keep everything in place and voila your cart is ready. Easy as pie. (and as cheap as can be) Gisela.
