    Built a PWC Mobile Shop Dolly for Under $100

    It lines up to my Comfab trailer perfectly. Now I have one more to build for the other ski.

    Materials list:
    (2) 2x4x72 (Bunks)
    (2) 2x4x48 (Base of Frame)
    (6) 2x4x42 (Cross Braces
    (6) 2x4x18 (Risers)
    (2) 2x4x36 (Lateral Braces)

    (1) Scrap of carpet
    (1) Spray Adhesive 90
    (4) 4" L brackets
    (1) Box of 3" Torx deck screws (3 at each joint)
    (4) 265lb locking casters

    About $99 and an hour and a half later.

    Looks good. Is it as strong front to rear as it looks side to side?

    Yes, it's VERY strong. I probably went a little overboard but....

    You have triangle bracing for side loads at the bunk level, but no triangle bracing for front to back or racking stresses at the bunk level.

    When your watercraft is on the cart you don't want the structure to fail forward or backwards.

    There are (6) 4"x1/4" thick steel "L" brackets and 72" long bunks keeping the cart from shifting forward and backward. Not to mention there are 4" casters and nearly 100 3" deck screws in the assembly.

    Don't think for one second that I haven't thought about it.
