The big problem I'm seeing is which do you fit in the car - the model boat or the trolley?     With most of these is looks like it's one or the other - or buy a van.    {-)

It's almost like "if it's big enough to need a trolley, then both won't fit in the car".   :-))

Hi all:
I found a yacht transport trolley to be towed by a bicycle at the waterfront of our local lake as seen in the pic.  %%


with the wheels that type and size, the yacht has to be well constructed to survive the bone shaking trip

I have a modified shopping trolley. I am sure that I saw it originally on this forum. It cost 10, or perhaps it was only 5, in the local Surplus Store. Take the Bag off, put some pipe insulating foam on and away you go. Our Lake at Poole has concrete wall edges which I simply roll the trolley down into the water - no bending down! Weight is 1.2 Kg.
