GMR Hobie AI plug-in cart

posted in: Hobie Adventure Island | 0

Built a version of the cart used to move sit on top kayaks around. Not totally sold on this type because I am concerned about damage to the hull if the cart stops and the heavy kayak wants to keep going……

Made the frame for this from 1×2 aluminum rectangular tubing with round corners and .120 wall thickness. The pins are just 5/16 x 6 stainless bolts with a one inch diameter polyethylene sleeve. There is currently no method of retaining the cart in the hull and the cart frame was not contoured to match the hull. These points will be addressed soon. The 12 inch wheels are super cheap (with corresponding quality ) from Princess auto and use a 1/2 inch axle with no bearings or bushings. The wheels are retained with quick release pins.
