for eassier removal of anchor when hooked firmly.........

the spring will engage when the rope force exceeds the designed "pull" and consequently change the direction of the force required to dislodge the anchor...hopefully the change in angle will assist in dislodging

It's a thingamajig made from 25x25x1.6mm square tubing, 50x6 flat bar, 20mm round, 32nb pipe, and a 6 inch long spring, to be used for holding something on your new boat :)

You are putting a small set of wheels on the back of the boat and you are holding the draw bar,

I have seen something similar that works, but not on road as a registered trailer, more a camp spot to the water and back arrangement.

hi steve
Yeah, it's just to get the boat the 500mtr back to camp each day without having to put the boat on and off the roof(not to mention take the outboard off)
I've swivelled the boat side to side etc and it seems to work well, waiting on the wheels for a real test.

So that little thing moves a boat 500m on its own.
Imagine what one twice the size could moove.
Maybe the navy could be interested.

All the best

Another spring inside the pipe, it compresses as the top spring moves down, pipe is just to hold in place

Lyndon ,

A friend made up wheels for me that clamp onto the side of my 3.7m Dart . Then he made a clamp which utilizes the handle and the winch rope hole on the front of the boat . This clamp is welded to a universal joint and a Treg trailer hitch .

It works very well , but obviously , its not something you can take on a public road . Very handy for that 500m you were talking about .
