My Seitech customized TI dolly.

This is something Hobie should offer.

It’s working very good and I can leave the boat on the Dolly safely.

Nice i was thinking of a similar thing with Trailex dolly. Problem was i launch from a slippery boat ramp and almost lost it once walking it down. So now I just hook the trailer to a golf cart or my truck.

I added one more photo to the opening post to show that I can Launch and Retrieve while fully rigged as well and never have to remove Ama/Aka's.

I removed the supports for the old strap and can now just lift on the Ama slightly and spread it's wings.

I might add wheels to the forward Cradle. Main shaft is bending, well flexing really, quite a bit.

Wondering how this dolly has worked for you?

Am looking at two other dolly's to potentially modify with Hobie Tandem Island cradles.

One is the Trailex Universal Dolly.
https://www.trailex.com/products/pc/Universal-Dolly-SUT-300U-p7.htm

The other is the WheelEEZ Boat Dolly.
https://wheeleez.com/product/wz1-bd-42ub/

Our Hobie dealer recommended the Hobie dolly. I tried that and had difficulty getting the Hobie dolly under the TI both on land and getting out of the water. Was thinking these dollys with a longer tongue would be easier to place/load the TI with. The balloon wheels are very buoyant adding to the difficulty of getting a good balanced placement under the TI--which is my #1 problem I now have with the Hobie scupper cart. Physics gets the upper hand.

Have any others tried these or similar dollys?

Looking for feedback on potential strength issues, with putting a front cross-bar on the tongue and it torquing the tongue too much.
