Nice idea. Thank You. Similar to this https://boonedoxusa.com/collections/lan ... nding-gear
I need the large (42x20 cm) (16.5x7.9 inch) wheeleez tires for AI weight and the sugar soft sand above the tide line on my beach. There's also a step onto a boardwalk that would rip off or bend a few flip up designs I've seen. The added height would not allow it to store under my camper. And with an AI, I like the weight of the cart behind the seat as close to the center as possible while on the water. The boat balances with the cart on center, so a front wheel is not necessary. Rolling the AI over on it's side to mount the cart would put more stress on my wrists than lifting it.
Empty boat lift weight at rear carry handle is 42 lbs, 54 lbs at the rear bungee loop inserts. Lift height is 30" off the ground to the bottom of the boat at the carry handle. Boat width at the carry handle is 13". Hull height is 9", and 5.5" from the bottom to the side seam.
Tripod Idea using a windsurfing boom & reel. First trial. The reel is not good at lifting with a single line pulley, and will not lower. I'll try a simple black ABS plastic pipe frame to compare strength and weight to the windsurfing boom. Then, maybe a carbon fiber pipe take-apart design. I still need to test a Vang type pulley setup for lifting. Foot powered?
Since I already carry the telescopic boat hook to untangle fishing line from the rudder I may as well use it. No need for the extra windsurfing boom to carry, anymore. I bored out the PVC fittings with hole saws to fit the pipe diameters. A couple of Ball-Loc Quick-Release Pins should hold it together. Any other suggestions? A pin in the bottom of the center T can hold a vang type pulley setup.
