DIY Sea Kayak Dolly

Postby weekendwithbevo » 06 Nov 2019, 09:54

I thought I'd share the construction of a simple kayak dolly with you all.
I'm yet to try it out but testing in my driveway (without straps) indicates a success.
The link below takes you to my blog where the process is outlined.

Cheers,

Murray.

Looks like it will do the job, the 20" wheels would make light work of tough terrain :up:

Peter,

That's the plan. Having the boat sit higher makes hauling it much easier rather than lifting and dragging with smaller wheels.

You'r right David.
At the end of my blog I mentioned that as the wheels aren't fixed that they could changed to suit your needs. :thumbsup:
