Thanks for that tip. I knew there must be a way to do it, but I couldn't find it! With some luck, here are the photos and plan. Axles and other parts came from

Thanks. Price isn't so good if you count the hours... but I kind of like doing that sort of thing.

Not sure of the weight, but it's light enough that I can move it around with the boat on it. I have to move it by hand to get it in and out from its parking spot in my back yard to the alley.

Might not be exactly what you're looking for, but check this out: Pacmule These are made just outside of Tulsa. Boater friend here had the one in the pics made to her specs, and looks like the company has now made it part of their regular product line. Appears to be rugged, well thought out, and high clearance.

And cost as much as a whole raft setup with a trailer, wow!

If I was going to spend a few bucks I would look at a Rapid Rig. I have one of the originals built by Walt so a bit different but the design is nice. The design to me really comes down to what tradeoff you want to make of bed height versus storage. Kind of depends on what kind of trips you primarily do.
