Moving The Boat | Making New Dollies

The boat will need to be supported when upside down in the garage, so a pair of dollies is required.

I didn't need to think too hard about how to do this, having already done it once.

I used the same measurements and used the mitre saw to cut some inexpensive but strong studding to length. Like this.

It didn't take too long to make them, and I fitted some braked casters so the boat can be easily moved around.

Here they are.

As before a stout vertical timber post takes the compression load at the stern on each side, and a strong plastic bucket is fixed over it to keep it upright.

Onwards and upwards.
