Cool.

Only one suggestion - unless you always launch on flat, sandy beaches, change those plastic wheels for inflatable ones - Ive seen three sailing dinghies holed by the trolley's supports as those wheels bounced (or not, to be more accurate!) over a rocky beach.

Other option of course is to screw some wider wooden plates in place of the rubber bumpers to spread the load.
