That's going to roll fast! You may want brakes on that steep ramp of yours!

All it needs now is a trailer hitch and plates.

Topher, Looks good. Are you going to leave the TI on the cart most of the time? Whats going through my mind is a way to secure the TI and the cart. And the cart when you are sailing.

All Topher needs to do is roll out of bed, walk down to his carport and roll his TI 100' to the ramp/water and cruise the bay.

Dood's got it made,...

The wife will probably let him keep the cart in the living room too. :wink:

Solution I had in mind for parking in the future IT storage
I just wanted to know what advice to the distance between the two cradles? 67cm? 77cm? 97 cm?
I think you need to enter a more robust and longer beam to pull the chute on TI sea .....
and insert a single mono-wheel swivel to give direction to the towing of cement for parking maneuvers in tight spaces
then .... better to come right back, with a small tilted axis (tilting), with a roll or two, the invitation to come easy to safely and accurately.
sorry for my poor English

wonderful forum :idea: 8) 8)

Well I dont have very far to hall the Ti maybe 200 feet. I do plan on storing it on the cart once I have it finished. I am not to worried about storage or steering, there are only two turns that I would have to make and for that i would just pick the nose up a bit to make the turn.

Hey -don't laff Larry, the guy I bought my Hobie from lived on the same bay and had exactly that!

I wanted to pay him just to rent the AI and that amazing launch spot, but he was selling the house. :cry:

you may be able to fit the table and the center 4 chairs but the end chairs with the arms are never going to work.

Well I finally have it completed. I am sure there will be more tweaks to come and I will keep yall posted as progress is made. So far I have not launched the TI with the cart yet. I just had PRK eye surgery two days ago and the doc said I need to wait a month before I go playing in the watter. So right now she will have to sit.Image

Beautiful! Quite the cart (not even a good description, maybe wagon!)

One MONTH! Better you than me. I'd be out there with goggles on :)

Damn. Just in time for the long holiday weekend huh? That's sad.. :cry:

I'm going out on the bay Monday on Catalina Capri 22. I was hoping to see you all at the sand bar!

Chris, a month is a looong time. Just say the word - I can run over to keep the boat and the wife excersized while you mend. :mrgreen:
