Default Folding boat trolley/stand

Some of the waters i use are away from the car park so to make it easy i have modded an old folding golf trolly to carry the boat , when i get down to the waterside the trolley folds down to make a boat stand

also when the boat stops at the other side of the lake recovery is not as bad (they are heavy when you have carried a 57" makara half way round the lake)

Hi Phil

Thanks for shareing the pic's of your modified golf trolly, thats certainly givern me a idea for one myself.

My QD25 Powered Skater 26 Cat (nearly 5ft long ) could do with one of them as the local lake down here in the south west
is on open moorland (disused clay pit), and a long walk if the boat dies.

all the Best

Bob, QDemon on Jim's RC, G7BXS on here,

Plymouth south west UK.

Very cool! I used a hard shell golf bag to fly my boats home from the US, cheaper than shipping that is for sure.
