Up Down Hinged Smitty Sled
« on: Jul 20, 2021, 02:54 PM »
My first shot at the Smitty sled with the coffee table hinges. I do need longer skis but it works great and can hold a lot of weight. Much thanks to VANHLN for the advise and videos. Now I dont have to drag a smitty sled seperate , put it together, and strap everything down!



A bad day of ice fishing is better than any day at work!

Nice work Papa Sly smart idea to put the metal strips on the inside of the sled for added strength. Personally I would be a little worried about the bottom of the sled sagging or cracking over time from the loads placed in it as it appears there are no cross member supports.
