Re: Cheap Dock Wheel?

You'll have make a bracket/axle for the wheel. Unless you have a welder, steel plate and rod and galvanizing ability aren't going to be cheap to make. As others have pointed out, the steel wheel and bearings of the wheel aren't ready for a salt environment.

Try Defender.com. Bought mine from them way cheaper. They come in sizes, if you don't need the 12" size can save money going with the 9 size.
