After long and exhaustive thinking :D , I came up to the following idea of a cart for my brand new TI :

Bought aluminum ladders, length ca. 4,5 meters, price 100 euros (140 USD)

6 pcs. of swimming noodles, price 30 euros, so about 42 USD

Two inflatable tires, axle and wood for truck ca 60 euros, 85 USD

Two waterproof plywood sheets for fixing the truck to ladders 20 euros, 30 USD

Overall cost about 300 USD

The plywood is on both sides of the ladder between the vertical bars, between the sheets is a piece of wood - and the truck is screwed and glued to plywood so that tke screws goes into the thicker wood that is between the plywood sheets...a couple of pics tells more. I have now used this a couple of times and it works perfectly. Take the boat up on the "longer" and less steep side of course :P

I also store my TI on the cart. Kind regards from Helsinki Finland - pictures are from Inkoo, Finland - south coast of Finland, Gulf of Finland is this water area.

Now that's a clever idea. :D
Got any pics of the TI loaded up?

Guessing you live close to the water?

At this moment I have no pics where TI is on the cart - but I´ll take some next weekend, also about maneuvering TI on/off cart.

TI is at the summerhouse, the distance to sea from the place where I store it is about 10 meters, 33 ft :D
