Home-Built 3-Pt. Mounted Boat Caryall
I use my home-built, 3-pt. mounted ęcarryall' to move a 14-ft. flat bottom boat from pond to pond on my ranch. It also serves as a utility box to haul firewood out of my woods, and I use it to haul rocks and dirt. It consists of a 5-ft. wide, 3-ft. high, three-sided wooden enclosure made from 1 1/2 by 3/16-in. angle iron and walnut wood. It mounts on my Iseki 16 hp tractor.
  To load the boat, I lower the carryall to the ground, then slide one end of the boat inside the enclosure. Then I attach a nylon rope to the other end of the boat and to the tractor's rollbar. When I arrive at the pond I simply back the boat down into the water and slide it out. The boat always stays level so I can leave all my stuff in it and it won't fall out.
