Looking for a small boat carrier for portages

I am wondering if anyone is interested in renting me their boat carrier/dolly for a weekend. I have a lite 14ft boat I need to get across a 1/4 mile portage to a remote lake. Had back surgey and don't want to push it by carrying it. I am guessing the boat is about 100-120lbs. Thanks in advance.

Where are you at and where are you going to use it? I am up by Walker and have one that would work well. Used to use it all the time on our boats to get into Basswood. Good and sturdy.

I am in the cities but need it for Crane Lake area. I am heading up this weekend but whenever would work. I am trying to get my buddy from Nisswa/Pequot Lakes area to go so that would work sweet if he did.

You could always build one, I built one for about $20. With a 2 X 6, a couple eye bolts, and a couple Wheels I picked up from Northern Tool. I think you can find the wheels cheaper at ax-man Surplus. I put on the eye bolts so I could use a ratchet strap to secure the wheels to the boat.

After securing The Wheels on the boat, I can throw all my supplies into the boat and wheel it around very easily, works great.

I was using it with a 12-foot Alumacraft boat

You can build one if you can't haul it. I have a similar design as posted. Choose your specs and do it out.
