    Nice cart. Home made or purchased?

    And I'll bite, what are Easy Glides? A quick google search did not find 'em. I assume they are plastic slides installed on your trailer &/or cart.

    Sorry, faulty memory. I was pretty sure the name I had purchased was EZ Glide. I did purchase from Overton's.

    I was planning to build a cart this weekend, then yesterday someone left a 2’ x 4’ palette by my work dumpster. So made a super simple one.

    Not sure that's going to work?

    I don't think you have enough height on the side rails. You will most likely hit on the "V" before the ski rests on the rails.

    Notice how I had to cut the 2X for the "V" to clear?

    I almost said something about that. I wanted to keep it pretty low, It works on my Hurricane, but I'm sure some other skis would bottom out, and would at least need the bunks on their side, if not raised up more.

    I have three different carts. Which cart I use depends on what I'm doing. For general storage or a second ski I'm storing in the shop awaiting it's place on the service lift, I utilize this Aquacart:



    I added the horizontal angle iron members, over the height adjusting pins, for added stability. Hind sight being 20-20, I wish I had ordered it with caster brakes. When I ordered it, all I thought I'd utilize it for was storage and wouldn't need the brakes. However, I have found myself stripping parts off a salvage ski when on that cart. Depending on what I'm doing, it'll start to roll away from me.

    This short cart is a Jetline. Originally, it had 2x4 bunks. Often the V-edge of the hull would bottom out on the cart crossmembers, so I replaced them with 2x6. I just utilize this for those that I roll up on my air lift table.



    The last one I don't have a photo of and it is packed in a semi-trailer with all my other tools. We sold our home and are in the process of moving to Alabama. This cart was a tube type steel frame with 6 casters and a screw jack. The screw jack would allow you to lower it to just above the ground and raise it more than high enough for any trailer bunks. It was stable enough for moving a ski around, but not for servicing a ski upon. I believe it was manufactured by a company called 'Rec Products" that was in or near Princeton, MN. The same fellow owned a crane service that I use to contract with to set towers and other things that required a crane. The casters that originally came with it were rather wimpy. I replaced them with some that had larger diameter wheels and better bearings.

    Radio-Active,
    I think my lifting harness "sling" would work on the 140. I used it many times on my XPL parabolic hulled Sea Doos. The lifting points are one piece and fairly short so that curvy lines at the bond rail are less of an issue. I would be willing to sell it if you want to PM me.

    Give it a shot, if it bottoms out, throw another 2x4 under the rails.
