Some handy ideas, gadgets, modifications, contacts and solutions to problems associated with various disabilities in this download. Maybe you have family, friends who would benefit.
"What do i need that for ?" I hear you say, well but for the grace of god any one of us can have a slip / fall, stroke, and just give up fishing, but an adaption may solve a problem. Arthritis, sprains even limb loss need not be a barrier to fishing !

Thanks Sally ,
I have been looking for some plastic wheels big enough for my MK 4 racing barrow .
The link to" Hippocampe " might be the direction I have been seeking.

Regards
David

Failing that David a post on the BDAA may throw up other avenues as a lot of the folks use a second set of specialist wheels. I have been looking into the motorvation scooters http://www.ukmotorvation.co.uk/cadi413d.html but have come to the conclusion that making a small trailer to my specific requirements would be better. Their aint no way I could get one of them things in my Corsa van and being the equivelent of a stretch scooter would bottom out on some of the marks I have in mind. Big wheels, plug in light board, tackle box on frame and I am away, some of the scooters these days are rated to carry upto 35o kilo ! Thats a lot of grippers !
