3m rib cover & folding launch trolley

Am after a cheap / tatty looking cover for my 3m mini rib project as it will live outside my mates house all year round and I dont want it filling with leaves etc

Also after a folding launching trolley for my Bombard 380 as its going to kill me carrying that 25 about ... so if I can wheel it all about great . New these are about 150 .. which is just silly for what they are.

Thought about launching wheels but just dont want to add more stuff that can get nicked if I leave it at anchor or dried out on the beach.

Hi Pete
I know were your coming from i have the Quicksilver HD430.
What i will say is i made my own launch trailer as i use a touring caravan too.
Have a look here
Testing water for my Quicksilver HD430
All told it took me about 5 hours to cut and weld,The steel was free from work.The wheels were 45 and i still need to have it galvenized yet.
I was forced in to building my own though as i couldnt find a folding one for the 4.3m long.I estimate that its cost around 140 to make not inc my labour.
If i could have though i would have just bought one.
