How to Adjust the Dolly to Fit Your Boat


The length of the Universal Launching Dolly easily adjusts to fit your Boat in a minute.  The Rear Supports Swivel from Flat to a Vee Position and can swiftly  be Adjusted to Fit Your Boats Hull.  The Forward Supports can be Positioned anywhere Along the Tongue of the Dolly. The Bow Stop Adjusts along the Length of the Handle and can be angled from Straight out to Flush on the Handle to Fit Tapered or Plumb Bows.

 

 

Universal Dolly Tongue Length Adjustment.


Generally, you would adjust the Dollies Tongue length to be about one foot past the balance Point.  This gives you the Lightest Handle Weight to pick up, while keeping the Boat firmly on the Dolly past the Axle Point.  Divide the Length of your Boat in Half and Add One Foot (12").  Example:  You have a 14' Sailboat - One half the length is 7' (84") - Add One Foot (12") - Would Equal 8' (96") - Adjust the Tongue to 96" and you are Correctly Balanced.

Exceptions -

Boats with Outboard Motors and Zodiac Style Inflatables - Position the Axle under the Transom for Best Balance Support.  See Example Chart Below.

Short Boats - 8' or less.  Position for Best Fit - See Example Chart Below.

Personal Preference - Adjust the Length to your liking.  Perhaps longer to make launching in Shallow Water Easier.

Large Standard Wheels
And Optional  Super Size Wheels

Trailex Universal Dolly with Super Size Tires and Comparison with Large Standard Wheel
Optional Super Size Tire Mounted on Dolly with Large Standard Tire Shown Side by Side

When should you consider the Super Size Wheel Option?  If sand is so soft, that your foot sinks in it to your ankle height, then the Super Size Wheel  would be appropriate.  Or if you have a heavier boat, which would need more support on moderate sandy beaches.

Remember - Utilizing the Super Size Wheel Option increases the dolly's floatation when in the water.  When using  the Super Size Wheels, step on the centerline tube to submerge dolly when retrieving boat.

 

 

Use Optional Super Size Wheels for:

  • Very Soft Sand
  • Muddy Areas
  • Rocky Areas
  • Uneven Ground
  • Heavier Boats
  • For Extra Clearance
