Does anyone have any suggestions for carrying a sea kayak.
I’m not talking about transporting on your car but more in the vein of moving it from the car to the put in, or on a portage.
I have a 17.5ft kayak, that weighs in at about 60lb total. I have a cart, specifically a C-Tug Kayak cart which is great for about 90% of my hauling options.
However over broken ground, or on some of the walkways to a dock facility (Philadelphia, I’m talking to you.) its impossible to use as they instituted a ramp with switchbacks so carrying the boat is the only option. Or even kayak camping where having the cart stowed, is not an option as it’s eating into valuable storage space.
Unfortunately my boat doesn’t give me the option to easily shoulder it and even if I do get it shouldered the length makes balancing it quite difficult. EG: once an end decides to touch down, you’re pretty much going to have to let it do that then readjust the shouldering.
SO I was wondering if there was any sort of carrier made for sea kayaks (Other than having a second person.) that allowed you to easily carry a boat.
