sack truck!!

I have seen a sack truck on eBay with 10" pneumatic wheels strong build quality for 20 quid.Has anyone used something similar to transport 2700mm sib on the beach instead of transom wheels for about third of the price!!Using the truck support against the transom and strapping sib to truck handles

Any thoughts please

Where are you going to store the sack barrow after you've launched?

Fair enough, for 20 give it a go, you can always make an outboard stand out of it.

Yep, Grandad used to move a Zodiac ZED31 like this in the late 70's, he used a standard Whitbread cellar truck with skinny solid wheels. He would strap the handles forward to the D rings and then over the top ofthe boat. It worked OK, but the skinny wheels were not great on sand or mud and it would fall off over rough ground, modern bigger tyres would be better.

After less than a season he made some transom wheels and that was the end of the truck.

I have a couple if b&q sack trollies, found suggestions on kayak websites. Cut them down with a hack saw and cover in pipe insulation. I have used them on kayak and dinghy depending on how much you cut them down, add tie downs and your sorted for under 20. Search images on google and you will pick up lots of ideas for adapting for your needs. If you cut them right down like kayak trolley you can store them on board.
