8-8’6″ Cat Trax with Cradles
The Cat Trax with Cradles are Murray’s choice for best beach wheels! This lightweight, yet sturdy rustproof beach dolly will carry your catamaran easily over sand, rocks, mud or pavement. The Cat Trax features strong aluminum wheel rims with two-ply pneumatic rubber tires. Roller bearings give low-friction wheeling. The standard length axle is double-drilled to accommodate either 8′ or 8’6″ wide cats. Cradles are necessary for any boat with a round bottom.
Choosing Axel Width: The best way to know which axle you need is to measure the width of your boat. All boats under 8′ wide use the 8′ Axle. All boats between 8′ and 8’6″ need the 8′ axle.
Boats that use the 8′ axle:
Hobie: Getaway, Wave, 14, 16, 17, 18
Prindle: 15, 16, 18
Nacra: 4.5, 5.0, 5.2, 5.5SL, 5.7, 5.8, 460, N15
Boats the use the 8’6″ axle:
Hobie: 20, Tiger, Wildcat,
Nacra: 6.0, 6.0NA, F18INF, F18, Inter 17, 18, 20, Carbon 20, N17 MKII Olympic
Supercat: 17, 20
Choosing Cradle Width:
#13-1402 with Standard Cradles (for H-16, H-18, Getaway, Wave, etc.)
#13-1402-1 with Wide Cradles (for Hobie 20, Inter 18, 20 or boats with wider rounded hulls).
We ask you to please specify your boat make and model in order to confirm the best fit of the cradles to your boat.
Optional aluminum backing plates (#13-1408 pair) allow the cradles to be more easily mounted to a road trailer. An optional axle extender (#13-1409) is available for boats wider than 8-1/2′.
This item is shipped un-assembled directly from the manufacturer, which will add to the delivery time. Since Cat Trax is an oversized item, a oversized fee will be added at checkout ($200 for the 8′ axle and $250 for the 8’6″ axle). Ground shipment will be your only option at checkout. Air shipping is very expensive and is by quote only. Sorry, the “Basic” delivery option is not available for this item. All non continental US deliveries will need to have shipping quoted, this shipping calculator will not reflect the accurate cost.
