    Pics of pwc carts....

    I am going to make a wooden cart for one of my pwc's and I would like to see some pics of how others have made them.

    Thanks,
    Rodney

    Here are the dimensions:
    18 inches between the rails
    32 inches wide at the base 2x4
    42 inches long
    The height will depend on the height of your bunks/rails of your trailer as you will want them to line up so you can slide your watercraft from one to another. I would buy the casters/wheels first so you can take them into account when figuring the height you want. Also, I do not recommend putting it together using nails...go get some good wood lager screws for this.

    Mine's kinda like that... but I hate the little wheels. Get caught on everything. If you make your own, get bigger tires and wheels like Beerdart. Harbor freight has some nice sized ones for like $10 a piece. I'll take pics of mine for you tonight.

    Beer, it looks like you need to check the camber on that cart. It looks a little off. LOL

    Additonal Carts

    Just thoughts,

    First is a $23 Cart I made from a few 2X4's and some 4" PVC


    Second one is the one I made today.

    $98.00 at Lowes for everything. However, Now that i have it, I would make a few changes.

    This is 2" PVC, but next one will be 3" (feels a little wobbley) and the wheels will be larger with a better attachment mechanism. These are 200# casters with threaded tops.

    Maybe go a little wider as well? I think you'll find it to be more stable and the boat won't slide to one side when you lay over it to do some wrenching.

    It sure looks nice!
