Well Jerdon was kind enough to give me a golf bag caddie. I have been kicking it around like a tin can in my brain, about how I could transport my tube behind my bike like you do kids. Pleasant Valley Res outside of Bishop has a bit of a walk to tube. People ride there bikes in so that is how this began. I used a ole hardwood handle for the cross support for now,(  plan to replace with an expandable pole so I can stow it on the tube) and the existing hardware, a few bunji cords. All my gear in the storage pockets, fins strapped to the D rings on the underside and rods tethered to the bottom side of the tube and hands free. It walks really well. I need to make a bracket that will couple the two together...........GT

Aren't you the ambitious one. 20 hours later and you got a working prototype. I hope you can video tape a couple of high speed runs to test the stability.

It doubles as a pocket box holder and I'll eventually try to mount a trolling motor on it.

Nice, but where do you secure your bike and cart while you are way out on the lake? When I have a long walk to get to the water from the parking area like the Bernasconi spot at Perris, I use a lightweight dolly (or handcart) that I strap my Float tube, fins and rods to with small bungee cords. After I get everything ready to launch, I chain and lock the dolly to a tree. After a long day of float tubing, the walk back uphill to my truck was exhausting when I had to carry everything. The dolly really made it much easier for me.
