When I arrive at a put-in point where I see that I need to use my cart to get my boat and gear to the water, it’s a fairly simple task to get the cart through the scuppers on my kayak and then load the gear and tackle into the boat. From there I can roll it all to the water, lift up, and let the cart drop out onto the ground…or even into the water.
My question is about getting that cart back under the kayak at the end of an outing.
If you have a partner with you this is not a problem. One man steadies the cart while the other lifts and maneuvers the boat onto it.
If you are solo this can be an exercise in frustration… and would probably be hilarious to an onlooker.
I think what I’m asking is:
Has someone already come up with some type of “kickstand” that will hold the cart in place with the posts aiming up at an angle that will allow the boat’s scuppers to be lifted over and onto the cart without having to offload all the gear/weight and then reload the gear once the boat is mounted on the cart?
