Bow trolley

Postby Fishery Pokery » Sun Jun 18, 2017 8:58 pm

Hi,

I am looking at getting a bow trolley to go with my Honwave.

You use it attached to the front of the boat to take the weight when you have the transom wheels down.

I've put a picture below of what I mean, but thought I would ask if anyone knows anywhere that sells them or different version?

Thanks,

Towing the sib


Joking apart, I'm not sure where I've seen them but like you, I have seen them before .

That picture also doubles up to show the capability of the aftermarket Honda launch wheels.
In there was all my gear, outboard and fuel... getting towed up black rock sands hitched/roped onto the Navara towbar :thumbsup

Thanks for the suggestions.

They all seem to be trade suppliers and are a bit more than I was hoping to pay.

I have found a cheaper set that doesn't look so good as those, but is a better price.
I will post it again when I find it again.

Thanks

Do these bow trolleys make a big difference to how easy it is to pull the boat along? Never seen them before but definitely interested now.

How about when you get to the top of a beach when it gets stoney, softer and uneven?

The one have seen that wasn't too steep is fairly was £90.

I'm thinking of getting an extending toe sack barrow instead now, as I could use it to move the outboard and deflated boat about as well.

I know it would rust, but they are only £30 delivered
