Davis dinghy wheels

I just tossed these wheels in the dumpster. I had them on my Livingston 7.5' dinghy. I probably actually only used them in landing the dink a dozen times while in Hawaii. The rims just are not up to the job. They begin cracking around the bolts holding both halves of the rim together. Once that starts, it begins to tear the inner tube. I kept the uprights with the hopes of adapting maybe go-cart wheels somewhere along the way.

Re: Davis dinghy wheels

Aloha Martin,
We're using some pretty nifty all plastic wheel on the dollies for the Sunfish. If I can find out the source I'll let you know. Guy who gets them is watching the races there in SF now.
