By far, the worst part of own­ing a dinghy is get­ting it into and out of the wa­ter, ei­ther from ship or shore. Weaver In­dus­tries builds a host of hard­ware so­lu­tions to make these nec­es­sary dinghy tasks more prac­ti­cal, from davits to chocks, hoists, and other ac­ces­sories. But if you con­stantly find your­self drag­ging your dinghy up and down a beach, scrap­ing it over bar­na­cled rocks or strug­gling through soft sand, then Weaver’s wheels may also be an op­tion for you.

Able to han­dle up to 600 pounds of com­bined ten­der, gear, tank, and mo­tor weight, the brack­ets and wheels al­low tran­sit over sus­pect ter­rain, and cer­tainly beat at­tempt­ing the back­break­ing lift-and-slide rou­tine. Putting the bulk of the weight on its wheels al­lows an op­er­a­tor to move the ten­der eas­ily. Ah, physics!

Sim­ply mount the stain­less steel brack­ets to the tran­som of your in­flat­able or hard­shell ten­der. Its ul­tra-durable, 10-inch wheels are made from roto-molded plas­tic, and while oper­at­ing the dinghy, the wheels ro­tate out­board so that even when the mo­tor is stowed and tilted in its up­per and locked po­si­tion, the wheels do not in­ter­fere. As a bonus, the wheels eas­ily pull out of their brack­ets for longer-term stowage. -Cooper
