a few months ago, I just started randomly getting a magazine delivered to my house – “BoatU.S. Magazine“. I’m not sure, but I’m guessing it was after I set up an online account at West Marine (although I never ordered anything – just got their free catalog… I should have known). the latest BoatU.S. magazine happily let me know I could subscribe and keep getting it for only $15! a steal of a deal.
so 99% of the time, I flip through the magazine each month and toss it out in the recycling bin in the garage, as it largely is focused on powerboats, with a plethora of advertising to suit those interests. this month, though, something finally caught my eye – it was a Sunfish! here is a scan from the page:
the short “article” is promoting a new dolly that is being produced by Wheeleez. this is the same company where I bought the foam tires that I have been using on my Sunfish PVC dolly. evidently, they are entering the adjustable small-boat dolly market, hoping to compete with the Seitech, Trailex, and similar models – all in the several hundred dollar price range.
as for me, I’ll stick with my home-made version with the Wheeleez foam wheels. at probably less than $100 total, it’s much cheaper than some of the dollies listed above, and it gets the job done just fine for me.
