???anyone ever checkout a smittys sled
Does the sled really help? Id like to buy the shack and make a sled, if its really worth it.
I opted for the easier version, mounted skiis to the tub. Buy some cheap skiis from Goodwill or something. Hacksaw off the ends. Drill some holes thru the skiis and thru the tub. Counter sink the holes in the skiis. Run the stainless bolts thru the skiis and tub and use some loctite. Your nuts will be in the floor of the tub. Your done. Pulls fine, saves the tub from being worn out and it costs about 10 bucks. One tip i do, dont pull your shack on anything besides grass and ice.. concrete and pavement is bad for anything.
I did like someone else mentioned, pre-drill the ski into the wood base, then counter sink the hole for a long deck screw. The cross members are removable so it gets much more compact; couple of bolts sticking out each end of the 2x4 cross members...PM me if you want more detailed pictures, I can get them at home.
Most just seem to build a solid frame for the skis which you can set your shack/sled on top of and just bungie or ratchet-strap it down to the frame for transport.
