SATISFIED CUSTOMER LIST
Thanks for your prompt shipment of the wheels, etc. Enclosed
check per your invoice.
The wheels & hitch are perfect. You are to be congratulated
on such a good product.
You asked how I fixed the bow. Your swivel joint goes over the
handle & locks. This would probably be enough but I had 2 pads with rings glued on
each side of the bow which will give 3 lifts to distribute strain. This should work on
inflatables, the wheels are of course close together--30" in my case. So will have to
turn corners carefully.

Thank you for the bow plate. We would have paid you for it. You
may use the following "testimonial" at your discretion.
'We have had our "Hi-Way Wheels" on our Gregor
aluminum boat for over 10 years. We have had no trouble with them. We appreciate the fact
no trailer license is needed.'
We had tried two other types without the success we have had with
these E-Z TOTE wheels. Strangers ask us about them, and how and where they can purchase
We highly reccommend them.

Boat Carriers- Dear Wayne,
Please send us a few of your Brochures. We are just now getting
ready to leave for Oregon for a month and already have one inquiry for information on
Alaskan Special we purchased in August. We gave our only brochure to Dutch's Marine here
in Novato, after showing him the wheels we had bought from you. My brother-in-law had
nothing but trouble with his boat wheels this year in Oregon and has asked us to get
information for him. Hope you finally had time to get away for some vacation yourself.
We are very satisfied with the launch wheels on a Gregor 13'
4" aluminum boat. GREAT PRODUCT.
What would I need to buy to change over to Hi-Way Wheels on this
boat? How much do the Hi-Way Wheels and brackets weigh compared to the launch wheels? What
would be the cost?

Hi, Just a note to tell you we used our "Flip-up and Off
Wheels" installed on our 12 ' aluminum boat for the first time during our fishing
trip (vacation) in the Port Townsend, Wash. area. They worked great, just as
advertised. If only the weather had been as great!
We had lots of inquiries and curious lookers - a bit puzzled of
what we were up to in lieu of a conventional boat trailer.
We're interested in purchasing your dolly with hitch and wheels
for moving and storing boat when not connected to our pickup. Please call after 5:00 pm
Thanks again for the new way of boat transporting and
launching. The perfect answer for R.V'rs with a pickup in tow with a boat carrier on top.
Feel free to add our name and phone number to your list of "happy users".

Boat Carrier- Att. Wayne Griswold
A number of people have been impressed with the boat wheels and
recently when I was at Reedsport, OR two fellows said they were ordering them.
Since you probably don't recall my name, I'm the fellow that you
brought the wheels to in Grants Pass, OR in 1991, and helped me install. In any case the
wheels have seen a lot of Territory, the furtherist being Homer, Alaska.
E-Z TOTE - Att: Wayne
Decided not to be a rep. Too lazy. Still like your wheels--the
best I've ever had, and I've owned several different kinds.
Will still gladly share info with interested parties. I kept your
cards to give to any and all. Will put same in my tackle box! Good Luck.
Dear Mr. Griswold,
The most important feature of the flip up wheels is the weight
factor and ease of handling. I have used these type wheels for 2 years and have had no
trouble whatsoever and there is no doubt in my mind boat manufacturers in order to expand
their sales need to adopt stronger bends and structurally better transoms not only to
incorporate this new revolutionary type Tote-Boat but a new method using lighter weight
materials to haul their boats on long runs or that short trip to the dock. This Tote Boat
allowed me to eliminate a heavy trailer I used to disassemble each year before leaving,
then reassemble and then duplicate this process before eompletion of my trip. My hats off
to Mr. Wayne Griswold for his ingenuitive method of allowing me the ease of taking my
aluminum boat anywhere without the hassle.

This is to inform you that our Son Jeffery Nickel 1750 Sunrise
Ln. Paradise, CA 95969 has taken over our boat. The boat place there in Paradise was most
interested in your wheel set-up so I gave him your phone number & told him to tell you
the Crazy Painter from Placentia gave you the information.
Would appreciate any future changes and/or information in regards
to the wheels and/or carrier be sent to Jeff. Thank you very much. My husband and I truly
did have much enjoyment in the use of the set-up for our boat.

Dear Mr. Griswold,
My highway wheels arrived just in time for me to install them
before going on a weeks fishing trip. I would like to say that they are everything and
more than I had expected. They are quality merchandise and perform very well. They are
just the answer that I had been looking for to transport my car top boat once I am set up
at a permanent location, as I have to car top the boat to and from my destination as I
pull a travel trailer behind the car.
Once again, I am very happy with your product. Enclosed is a
check for $10 as per our telephone converstion.

What I would like to say about the E-Z Tote Boat Carrier Wheels
is quite simple. For quality and performance it's far more for your money and I don't have
to go looking for a boat ramp to put out on.
People get a big laugh watching me and want to help. I just tell
them I appreciate it, but as you can see it is easy and I enjoy it.
Well thanks again. God bless.

I believe it was about Feb. 1993 when I took my new 15'2"
Klamath boat to your shop and we installed the E-Z Tote wheels on it. Since then my wife
and I have taken it to Alaska. We spent the whole summer there in 1993.
We have been on numerous trips to the Oregon Coast for Crabs.
Also many trips to Northern Calif. fishing.
We have interested people watching what is going on. You make a
good product and I have had no trouble.

E-Z TOTE by Boat Carriers-Wayne Griswold October, 1988
I think your products fulfill a definite gap with respect to the
purchase and use of small recreational boats. For many, the deciding factors which enter
into the purchase of a small boat are storage space, total costs and the extent to which
the boat can be used.
Your E-Z Lift Hitch, Universal Pivot Joint and Flip-up Highway
Wheels for towing and launching provide a real savings over conventional boat trailers.
They also minimize storage and handling requirements and increase the utilization of a
boat. I predict that small boat manufacturers, in order to stay competitive, will begin to
standardize construction so that products such as yours can be readily installled.
Similarly, your Fifth Wheel, Trailer T-Bar E-Z Loader, enables
small boat owners to car-top their boats. I know that many Fifth Wheel owners have
purchased a boat largely because you have provided them with a low cost, convenient method
of transporting it while towing their trailer. Your E-Z Tote Dolly for moving the boat by
hand rounds out a line of products which are economical, lightweight and easy to store.
I am most pleased with my purchase and the quality of your
service and wish you continued success.

On a couple of occasions I have observed your car-topable &
roadable aluminum fishing boat wheels in action. I am interested in brochures, options,
prices, nearest dealer location & any related information that you can provide. My
fishing boat is a 200#, 14'2" Gregor which I cartop a lot but I do have occasions
where highway speeds on wheels would be preferable. I would appreciate hearing from you.

Dear Boat Carriers:
Terrific is all I can say!
Many times when the ramps are crowded, your spring mounted
13", roller bearing wheels are ideal for launching my 14' Gregor, motor & gear
from the out of the way, hard to get to places on the lake with my 4 wheel drive Isuzu.
I know many times the wheels have saved me hours from waiting in
line. A few times I was camped close to the lake but 3 or 4 miles from the boat ramp so
you can see the time I have saved. I'm telling all my friends about them.
Wayne Griswold 11-20-91
Dear Wayne, Thanks for the Transom Plate. My boat is showing some
pretty good sized dents and the plate will be put on right away.
I'll probably be calling again for more wheels as people will be
seeing the 2 sets
I have gotten from you.
I give them the invoice I got from you so they don't think there
is a middle man.
Your great to deal with and hope to meet you some day. Thanks
Jim Schmidt 707-838-2030

Thanks for the info. I appreciated your coming by, and just in
time in 1986 to help me with a longer bolt I needed for my cup I was about to weld on. I
was about to call you when you rang our bell--you solved my problem.
I'm well satisfied with my Heavy Duty Flip E-Z Tote set-up. I've
given out lots of info to many interested boaters. Thanks again,

Dear Mr. Griswold, 6/23/98
In response to how we used our boat wheels, my husband Lloyd and
I loved to RV. We had a motor home and towed a van. On top of the van we carried a 14'
boat with motor and wheels in the van. We loved Grand Morais, MN. We would spend several
weeks in August there.
We got the boat down off the van, put the wheels on and covered
the country side--going from lake to lake. Sure saved cartopping everyday at our age. We
didn's put in on the Boundry Waters, no motors allowed, but did cover most of lakes near
WY. Was not unusual to cover 60 mi. or so a day. We did have a good time, didn't catch
many fish, but saw some beautiful scenery.
Very truly yours,

Received your latest info package here in Mexico this week. We
need some parts to adapt our wheels to another boat we've acquired. We'd like to purchase
a set of channel brackets for the transom of 14' Gregor, short transom model, and a bow
cup which we would have welded ourselves. Could you send me price info and where I might
pick it up in the Southern California area? We'll be in San Diego and Orange County about
June 15 & will be heading north to ports unknown. Please advise by return mail to the
above Mexican address ASAP, as it can be slow getting here. Postage is about $.40 from
Very truly yours,

I telephoned you yesterday and I am following up immediately per
our conversation. I have enclosed the 2 checks. One check is for the E-Z Tote Kit. The
other check is for the postage & delivery of E-Z Tote Kit.
I also am very excited about your offer to me regarding being a
Sales Distributor and sell your company's products. I would like to have more of an idea
of exactly what area I would have.
To give you some additional information about me. Both my wife
and I are retired California teachers as of June 1995. We are currently wintering in
Florida. We are avid travelers and will be touring the US and Canada. So far we have
reached 30 states and 3 Canadian Provinces.
Needless to say if we are carrying your advertising on our boat
and 5th Wheel, you would get wide circulation and exposure.
