Flip Down Portage Wheels

5 posts in this topic

Anyone have any pictures of their flip down style portage wheels? I am thinking about adding these to my Alumacraft T-14S and I have some questions about a number of design issues such as; attaching the frame to the boat, latch for the wheels when they are in the down position, etc.

Are you looking at buying a set, or making one??

Well, preferably making them myself... Do you have a suggestion on someone who would build them for me? In the many times I have been into Basswood I have seen quite a few variations, but havent taken the time to look at some of the details.

Warren Marolt from the Virginia area builds them.

I think they cost around $400, includes labor, materials, two motorcycle tires, etc. He does a nice job.

I think they also fit them on your boat, but could be wrong.

There was a thread last Spring about the flip down portage wheels that you night find useful.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
