Good pics Rogan How do you move the six wheel trailer ? No ball hitch for towing ?? It looks like a launching trolley for a sailing boat but must be hard to move around on the soft sand ?

Yeah, it's for a sail boat but works great for a small RIB. Takes three people to move and its a lot easier than dragging it up the beach.

I asked around about the beach trailer and no one seems to know who makes them. We were using the neighbors when we were on the beach in Michigan. I'll make sure to check next time I am there.

thanks rogan. you mentioned three people to move it and it looks like it has 6 wheels. i was hoping to make a single axle, 2 ATV tire dolly that would allow me to single hand it to the water over 50 yards of moderate sand. or at least be able to muscle it down with one other person. if i
were to balance the load correctly do you think it would be possible?

I don't think that 2 wheels is going to be enough. Having six spreads all the weight on the sand and is pretty essential. If it starts diggin in it's not really going to go anywhere. If you had six and your boat is 500 lb you could prob do it with one person. Surf conditions add a whole other element though.
