Ok I will do what I want as like others on here I enjoy messing about and making stufF.
I know this will save me a lot of money.

All I asked for in my first post was any advice relevant to the making of these by someone who had already made some or like myself is planning to.

If you read your original post you clearly state "wheels" however that is academic as it is your good self who is not listening , all of my links and my market purchase are for wheels with tyres. As with snapping turtle who clearly states wheels with tyres.

This will be my last post on this thread but if anyone has any helpful info please email or pm me.

Those who have listed useful posts,thank you all.

What is it with forums?????

I meant no offence to anyone!!!

I DID say "Unless of course you intend to build a better product."

What is it with Forums??? Maybe newcomers should get to know some people's posting styles a bit better before they assume they are just causing trouble for the sake of it.............

Maybe established and prolific posters who appear to attract more trouble than most should think about their own posting styles a bit better!

I've been away for a few days, and have just read through the entire thread. Alot of great responses and useful information had been provided both in regards to how-to, but also regarding certain realities regarding time and effort involved to successfully fabricate a functional set.

All, and I mean all responses should have been received with gratitude (rather than a hissy fit) that someone took their valuable time to try to help with practical advice- whether it was what the original poster wanted to hear or not.

Not to seem like i'm defending my reply bit the very first question the poster asked is "has anyone made their own DIY launch wheels. I was merely answering that question and adding my opinion. I thought perhaps doing so might give the poster a different perspective. In any case it certainly was not my intention to offend and I obviously think the post is a good one as I DID in fact make a set of DIY wheels.

Well ... I have my own DIY I-type launching device . Kind of ugly one but cost me ... let's see. 2x10" tires 25$ taken from dolly, Bolts&nuts 5$, one peace of wood 2x4x8 4$, car safety belts - free (did cut them from car on scrap yard), peace of rope - kind of free, had it in the closet. Can handle assembled boat (in kg's: 80boat + 40motor + 20gas + 30fishing gear)

I do not have pic's right now. Could make them probably next weekends.

re launching wheels

I dont know if any bodyelse has tried this but it worked fine for me

i had a 2 wheeled folding sack truck , it was for carrying water when we had a caravan it was light weight

i used to place it on the ground handles down then attach a couple of bungies to the handles and brought them up to the side grab handle and another over the tramsom

not perfect but very cheap and off the shelf

this was used with my zodiac 340 airdeck and 15 yam plus all the other bits that you end up with for a days boating
