Of course you could build your own trailer and trolly.
This one is for 1:100 Missouri, QE2 and QM2 (3.6 metres long)

It's been a while  {-)  BUT I now have a transporter.
A converted newspaper cart.
I should also be able to launch and retrieve it with this.
It also folds  :-))

I've searched eBay and cannot find one like this and unusually mine has no model markings on it.

"The Range" had these folding things they called 'festival carts' Today for about 40. Nice soft sides and good squidgy tyres.

Hi Tug, Thats the one i have bought, folds up into a small size, also altered mine, removed the "bag" and added a ply platform so my smaller boats don't fall through, depending on parking i can have a 1/2 mile walk to the lakeside, can now take a few boats to sail instead of struggling with one

I found out why there are no PENN identification marks on the reel  {-)
I took it off to fit the new one and on the back of the mount is says made in Japan. So its a lookey likey  ;D

My trolley above for the Athon is not suitable for the Portgarth and not good on rough ground either.


My stand that I put together for its construction is so robust I figured I could evolve it into a cart and later make another stand for display/storage.


These are barrow wheels off eBay.
I've used 20mm conduit for the axle and 25mm conduit for the keel line tube that will after tomorrow accommodate a slide in handle. Just need a leg under the front.

Thanks Paul. I'm quite chuffed with it  O0
I'm going to give it a paint job ,probably Royal blue and I have some BIG Portgarth stickers for the sides  {-)


A grip for the handle is the only problem as the tube will be 20mm. Bikes start at 25.4  {:-{

What about something like fishing rod shrink wrap it's a thin rubber that is quite grippy in differant diameters that you can just cut to length, something like this (but local tackle shop has probably got some https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/361364301053?chn=ps&dispItem=1&adgroupid=46622246639&rlsatarget=pla-369907351582&abcId=1128946&adtype=pla&merchantid=7267454&googleloc=1006565&device=c&campaignid=857250873&crdt=0&var=630707264710
