very simple to assemble, should be very just the ticket for hauling my sea kayak through the dunes at the beach.
My only issue...why does all this stuff need to be made in China?
Just received the cart today, so this is more of a preliminary review. It is very well made on first inspection. Went together very easily, but I had an issue with one of the valve stems not sealing to the pump fitting. First tire pumped right up, but the second just kept blowing air past the stem. No big deal, I just used another bicycle pump to inflate it to the proper diameter. One of my biggest worries was if I would be able to stow it in the hatch, being that it was nearly one meter from end to end. I have a Cobra Fish n Dive with a very large rectangular hatch, so I just winged it and took a chance. I had to finagle it a bit, but the whole thing and both wheels will fit. That�s important to me because I use my yak for diving and need the room topside for tanks and gear. I can�t wait to try it out this weekend. I�ll post another review about ease of travel over asphalt, boardwalk, and sand that I have to traverse to the beach and degree of difficulty in getting the yak mounted properly for carting�stay tuned.
I'm using this under a 17'7" kayak loaded with gear and it crosses the beach with ease. Highly recommended.
It is very helpful and make its so much easier
We have to haul our Sunfish sailboat up over about 30 feet of sandy beach into our boathouse. Even though this was designed for kayaks, it works well for our Sunfish. It used to be a two-person job using a cart with standard wheels, but the baloon tires on this cart make it easy for one person to do it. The frame is REALLY solid, and completely powder-coated paint, so corrosion shouldn't be a problem - we haul out of salt water. The straps are too short to hold the Sunfish, but it was designed for kayaks - we just put on longer straps.
