    I dunno, I kinda give the guy some credit for bothering with the third axle.

    Would we have felt better about it if he hadn't reinforced the straps with duct tape?

    This is in the same league, though much more ambitious, as the old wooden Star Class sailboat I saw forty years ago whereon the owner patched over some dry rot at the top of the stem using one of those typical (at that time) loosely-woven nylon dish cloths impregnated with polyester resin. The multi-colored squigley fibers of the cloth showed through, and it wasn't sanded smooth.
