The trolley has now been commissioned and it passed it's initial test with flying colours.
The next test will no doubt be Robin's close inspection of my welding which, even though I say it myself, is pretty damn good!
Here you see it earning it's keep already, with yet another load of stuff for the boat.
I can already see that this is going to be one of those times where I'll be thinking 'why didn't I do this sooner'.
I did start work on a drawbar, but wanted to do some trials to see how it handled first.
Unsurprisingly it handles like a shopping trolley, so maybe I'll switch the back wheels to fixed wheels rather than castors. If I do, I'll will loose the turning capability, which I quite like on the confined dock.
Shifting loads like you see is effortless except, I've discovered, when trying to cut through a sandy bit.
