Freewheelin' Brick

Hi Chuck!
This summer I made a set of wheels for my Brick sailboat "Salubrin". It took up too much space in my garage so I flipped her on the side. Unortodox but it works, the short trip to the river is pretty easy, and the wheels dont take much space in the boat when I´m sailing. The only problem so far is turning tight corners. I´ll have to figure that out. Maybe a steeringwheel...hmmm. Anyway, I´d like to share this tip with other box-boat captains.
