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.
