Had a close look at frame work. Where axle connects the frame curves and it looks like the wheel might have enough clearance after all. Still waiting for wheels to arrive for Brisbane then all will be answered. Should have been here by now probably Christmas rush holding things up.

Wheels arrived and fit on hobie cart perfectly. No problems with the recessed hub. The axle length allows for a hub width of 72mm the hubs on the sea to summit wheels are 68mm. I did make sleeves( bushes) to decrease the diameter of wheels hubs from 25mm down to 12.5mm to fit the Hobie cart axle I was able to get some 25mm diameter round solid plastic and drill a 12.5mm hole through centre to make these. Happy with the wheels definitely better than the foam filled wheeleze wheels that came on the Hobie cart originally

Next stage will be shortening poles and fitting some plastic in pole fittings. To attach bungy chord and line to make easy self loading system with lines going through scupper holes.

Now complete. All fittings stainless steel. Plastic fittings secured using silicone and stainless steel pop rivets. Bungy cord 2 mts long. Now all I have to do is try it. Cant see any problems.

Hey fulla I love this idea.
Can you post the the links for the wheels and where can I get the plastic for the the bushes. I’ve alreeady got the bungy’s fixed for self loading. Having the plastic wheels would allow the scupper poles to align easier as the sink under the boat. Top marks for inga ...injanu ....being a clever clogs. :lol:

The Sea to Summit wheels I got on ebay from FreaksportsAu in Coopers Plains in Qld. The 25mm diameter solid plastic which I drilled with 12.5mm centre I got from local plastic suppliers Menzel Plastics in SA.

Try beach wheels Australia. They’re on the Gold Coast from memory. They sell wheel eez wheels at half the cost of hobie outlets. I put up a post in do it yourself as I did a conversion from inflatables to heavy duty type. A trip to Bunnings irrigation section got me the parts.

Have a look at my post , in do it yourself section. "Putting your cart back on at the ramp "
You do not have to submerge the wheels, it is more to do with lifting the kayak high enough. So the cart can align itself with the scupper holes. Then you lower the kayak onto the cart.

Hope that this helps.

Well that's weird. I only had issues very early after the changeover, but when I click on your link, it logs me out! :beye:
