Compass24 Dinghy Dolly Wheels

Hi, I bought a set of compass24 Dinghy Dolly wheels the turnable ones and to be honest they are useless. The Honwave T38 IE3 keeps slipping off. Can't believe I payed that price for them. Anyone else had similar problems or do they work better on different inflatables.

Again sorry I’m slow to this. Yes the SIB can easily fall off the support forks. See post #80 in this thread for the straps I used to stop that. There is a factor that makes this problem more likely and I’ll explain when I’m at the desktop with images to hand, on the phone at the moment.

OK glad you are sorted.

For anyone who trips across this thread thinking about this bow dolly type see post 81 here to see the handle height mod I made. It was needed for me as unless you are child height or have very long arms the handle sits too low which means you tend to lift it for a comfortable pull along. But that has the effect of dropping the support fork away from the boat leading to it wanting to fall off them in anything other than a straight pull. What is actually needed is downward pressure on the grip so in bending my handle up I've achieved this....

For me with these mods done this trolley is life changing for longer trundles to the water.
