Before getting a trailer for my TI, I was car topping it and doing it by myself. For that, I needed a bow wheel cart. First I went with REI $90 cart.

After one use I broke a wheel on this cheap cart that was meant for a much lighter kayak. My solution is what you see in the pictures below. This will fit a TI bow perfectly and will strap the cart into place. I'm sure this can work on Adventure Island and other Hobies as well.
The cart is $110 on Amazon

On it I built a wooden frame and the contact surface is spongy material meant to conform to the bow (or perhaps stern). Two straps are securing the cart in place.

If you need to wheel your Island from the front, car topping it, or whatever application this can serve, this cart is yours for $75. I live in Northern NJ zip 07094 and you will have to pick it up.
If interested, please text me at 917-309-2100.
