Moving a small craft to and from the water can be a huge hassle.  Quick and convenient, the Wheel-a-Weigh Launching Wheels and Dollies from Davis Instruments simplify the whole process.

            Constructed of anodized marine aluminum and stainless steel with injection molded wheels and double, hard-rubber tires, the Wheel-a-Weigh Launching Wheels are mounted in tracks permanently installed on the transoms of boats and cartoppers.  Wheels lock in the down position for transporting overland and then lock in the up position after launching.  Wheels are easily removable for storage or theft prevention. 

            The Launching Wheels measure 8″ x 1.5″ and can handle 250 lbs. on hard surfaces or 100 lbs. in soft sand.  With pneumatic tires, an extra capacity version features 16″ x 4″ wheels and a weight capacity of 300 lbs. on hard surfaces or 200 lbs. in soft sand. 

The Wheel-a-Weigh Kayak Dolly features a heavy-duty anodized aluminum axle with rubber tires on injection molded rims.  The injection molded bunks are covered with santoprene thermoplastic rubber for non-skid performance even when wet.  The bunks are 20″ L x 3″ W and have a fixed spacing of 18″.  Spaced 19″ apart, the 11″ x 1.75″ wheels can handle 200 lbs. on hard surfaces and 100 lbs. in soft sand. 

Made of heavy-duty anodized aluminum tubing and polypropylene struts with santoprene rubber-covered bunks, the Wheel-a-Weigh Small Boat Dolly is adjustable to fit rowing shells, canoes, sailboats and dinghies.  Injection molded, the bunks measure 19″ L x 3″ W and are adjustable from 18″ to 28″.  With pneumatic tires, the wheels are 16″ x 4″ and spaced 37″ apart for simple maneuverability.  The Small Boat Dolly has a weight capacity of 250 lbs. on hard surfaces and 150 lbs. in soft sand. 

Both Wheel-a-Weigh Dollies feature holding straps with delrin quick release buckles and fold-away foot rods to hold the dolly upright, facilitating single-handed loading.  The units are easily disassembled for transport.  Wheel-a-Weigh systems are not designed to be towed behind a vehicle.
