Anyone using the coffee table hinges and Skis, I have a question. I went with the hinges that mount on the side of the sled so that when it's lowered the tub sits on the ground.  What are you using to make reinforce the sides of your sled behind the bracket? I was thinking aluminum plates, fender washers, or wood. I want to stay as light as possible but not risk cracking or breaking the tub.

Here are my mods.  I put ski's on the bottom, milk crate with boat seat, and fabricated a windbreak out of an old canopy frame.  Recently I added the pole holders.

Snitch, Looks good.  Nice and simple but looks like it will be effective.

Thnx, I've been working on it for a couple of years.  Started with the windbreak, then added the milk crate, then the seat and rod holders were added last year.  Thinking about making a conduit frame for the tub to sit on and mount the frame to ski's instead of 2x6.  Hopefully, lose a little weight.  So far I really like it.  I can put the windbreak up and take it down, in less then 5 min.

That's more what I have in mind for a frame under my sled.  I want to lose the wood risers and go to conduit or pipe. I think I can lose some weight by switching over.

You should be able to lighten it up by losing the wood, mines 1" x 1/4" angle iron.

think outside the box, it's not done yet and a little top heavy, can't take corners over 10mph, lol I'm going to add rod holders and some type of foldable outrigger wheels as well as a couple eyelets for bungee or strap use to secure auger or my hub house in the future. I wanted to keep it skinny enough to fit on the back rack of my quad. #35 as it sets with gear.  tubes hold 15 tip ups, enough for me and my 2 boys.  Auger goes on front of my quad along with a empty milk crate with another bucket in it. I have a custom rack attached to the hitch of my quad to hold my schappel 4000 fish house if the weather is going to be that bad.
