newbie to this forum, wondering if I could get feed back or any ideas on a safe cart system for a TI. I have had my first hull replaced under warrenty because the scupper tubes split on the top outer edged.
I have tried the cart in the rear scupper tubes, this seemed to be a better option for the hull but not much good for my back. I have just finished making a swivel wheel for the front mirage drive hole, I am hoping using this and the cart in the rear scuppers will sovle the issue.
Has anyone tried this before?
I have decided to attach a couple of pics, please excuse the look of the thing, was going to use that white chopping board plastic but stuck with what I had in the shed. The swivel wheel is supposed to be rated for use in water but I need to find a lubricant / protector that won't foul the water.
I have tested the three wheeler and had some sucess.
The problem I thought I would be the biggest was attaching the front wheel in the water to retrieve the yak but this proved to be quite easy using the belt and sliding it under the hull from the front then clipping it and adding tention. A little tricky but not the swim I thought it would be.
Other cons I found, can't have sail in place in any breeze as it tends to tip, a real pain to load onto the car, with the wheel cart in the rear scuppers, this has to be removed before lifting the rear of the kayak onto the roof.
Does anyone have a better system
Please excuse if these pics are too big.
