I couldn't find the Taylor Made one up here in Canada so I went with this one instead:

https://www.amazon.com/Dock-Edge-Wheel- ... th=1&psc=1

It seems to work well and I definitely would not want anything smaller than 18" as it would be useless. The 18" seems huge but of course only 9" extends beyond the edge of the dock.

As for the bracket, it was nothing special, just a galvanized L-bracket with a metal pin and a bolt in the top to keep the wheel from sliding up and off. I'm sure it could be replicated rather easily, but not sure it would be worth the hassle.

Cheers.

Chris, it looks like you did reasonably well. Since you are slipping the boat, I'd say that having those wheels will make docking easier and provide greater peace-of-mind. I have docked in more than enough un-protected un-maintained areas that have made me very nervous. Eliminating just one scratch or gouge will pay for them. Install 'em and don't give it a second thought.

Glad to be past half way in the off-season. 8) :D

Thanks Gary, it’s something I wanted To make sure I got made and assembled before first splash this year, which should be 8 weeks from yesterday.

This winter has been better than last. Last year we bought the boat in late sept and winterized it. So it was a winter of thoughts and prayers.....


Excited to see this board pick up in activity
