The new transport wheels are exactly what I needed for moving my NuCanoe back and forth between the garage and my truck. It only takes a few seconds to snap them in place. I also leave them on because it’s easier to move the boat into the water with the wheels rather than dragging it on the grass. Washing my NuCanoe is simple now. I move the NuCanoe right side up on the grass and then wash out the inside. After I rinse, using the wheels quickly flip the NuCanoe over and wash the hull. The inside drips dry and I move it upside down into the garage to allow added drying time of the inside. It’s a great accessory – I wish I had thought of it.
That’s all the good stuff if you want to include it on the website. A couple other points--
--As I suspected, transporting a fully equipped NuCanoe for any distance at the lake is a job and a half. My fishing partner and I used the handles at the mid-point on the hull. My old transport wheels work better for long hauls.
--The shaft that inserts into the hull is not a tight fit. I realized that the transom hole on my 10 foot and 12 foot are 2 different sizes. By using a 1 inch copper pipe coupling on the plastic busing on the transport wheels, I was able to exactly match the diameter of the transom hole. Because the 10 foot hole is a bit larger, it’s a bit sloppy.
These are the only 2 not-so-good comments. It saves me a bunch of time for moving the hulls around when they are empty. It’s a great accessory unless someone wants to transport their NuCanoe fully loaded - but I’ve got other wheels for that.
