The Boonedox Landing Gear Kayak Wheel System attaches, deploys, and retracts without having to tip the kayak on its side. Has a 3/8 in. Machined Gear for mounting fishing accessories and accepts Yak Attack and Ram Mounts. Made of aluminum extrusions with stainless steel legs and no-flat solid wheels. Attaches to the hull of the boat and expands from 17-27 in. to accommodate multiple boats.
I mounted mine on an Old Town Predator XL Minn Kota. Its a heavy kayak, So far so good.
Have this installed on a 2017 Hobie Pro Angler 14 in camo color. Just received information that the product caused hull failure on two of these, specifically in camo. Not sure if I'm going to be using it anymore. Their only solution was to put a longer backing plate underneath for "peace of mind." At this time I don't think drilling more holes is a good solution for me. If not for the potential damage (it voids warranty as expected), the product works great.
It's a cool system it works good on payment or very hard packed smooth surfaces. It's also a great starting point. Don't like how close the wheels are to the botom of my kayak on the lure 13.5, or the amount of time to cleanly install the item. It's a great generic starting point. And since I can't get boon dox suport to make it better for the lure series I'm glad I have friends with tig welders.
Pretty disappointed in this product, and well as Boonedox customer service. I installed the system, put the wheels in correctly, and hand- tightened the retaining screws down, put the kayak on my T-Bar in the bed of my truck, and then drove from Austin to lake bastrop - one of the wheel arms separated and was lost on the highway somewhere. I assume the road vibrations vibrated the screw up until it was loose enough for the wheel to slip out. This seems like a design flaw, given that the wheel/wheel arm should remain in place during transport, even on the highway, and then at the location, be able to be used. As it stands, this product is still worth using, I'll just have to take the arms off each time I transport to and from the lake (and probably while on the water, as well, so I don't spend the trip worried one is going to come off).
