    I added this simple bracket to the rear seat crossbar on my Outcast toon. Use the foot pegs as handle bars and roll the toon backwards to the water.

    All you need is a bracket, and a used bicycle front yoke with a 16" wheel. I got mine at Goodwill for $5.

    If you can roll a wheelbarrow, you can transport your toon and gear to the water with ease.

    If anyone needs a bracket, I'll build you one free.... when I have time. :)

    Riverman, if you are building brackes, I'll get in that line. Let me know any necessary details. This is a much cleaner design that what I'm using currently.

    RM,

    That is awesome... can I get in as well? Would love to have two for my rigs. One for the wife and me. We'll share a wheel. Happy to pay for them. Your design is ideal, I struggled how to be simplistic with this need and you distilled the perfect solution. Thanks!

    I have plenty of aluminum scrap, so I'll weld the brackets during the holidays and get them all in the mail after the first of the year.

    Riverman I'd love to have one of those brackets for my outcast. Your system is WAY easyier than by double wheel canoe carrier. Let me know if I can pay for the postage!

    OK guys... I have the brackets all cut out and will begin welding them one day late next week.

    If you asked for one, you will receive it sometime in mid to late January.
