Caravan movers are to slow, I want something that will take the drudgery out of dragging the boat 400yds along a pavement. I don't mind dragging the boat 30yds across the sand.

Hi Stray

I know this is an old post but wondered if you ever got round to making something?

Ive been thinking about the same thing as pulling mine up the beach after a days fishing usually involves a couple of trips to the car so i can pull the boat and motor which is about managable.

Hi stevern, I have a solution, but I don't think it would fit in the back of a car.
I bought this off a Mackam for not a lot of money;





and cleaned it up.






It does pull the boat,



but I haven't used it in anger yet, it still needs a bit of work.

I was up your way last week, had a couple of codling out of the river.

Ha, you are right that wont go in the car, like it though. Im going to have a go over the winter at making something a bit more compact.
If i lived close to the sea i would go down the road of a quad bike or similar to what you have. Hope it works well for you.

My grandad had a rotivator that had a trailer specially for it, even had a little seat on the trailer it was wooden and he used to take us for a ride around paddock/garden on it I'll try and dig a photo or video out they are still used in some country's on the road (turkey/russia) but would take a sib easily and fit in large boot.
