    You can get the rollers at most any boat supply store. I know the Boater's World store that is here has them.

    My first thought was that's a pretty damn big sulky, and it would really cut down on the maneuverability of that WB.

    Interesting, now that you way it, yah those are boat rollers, but I always wondered if a person could get the wheels from the big league stripers somewhere.

    Yes I know that Grits. Maybe I worded it wrong.

    What I was saying is that I was looking at the BL rollers, and wondering where I could buy those types of wheels so I could make my own for half of the price they charge. It didn't dawn on me that they were boat roller wheels but now that someone said that it's almost duh, why didn't I realize that.

    Personally I just get a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment when I leave an account with nice stripes. I agree that there are more important things to worry about, its just something that I like to do.:usflag:
