Post subject:  Help with a kayak cart

This is my first time needing a kayak cart so forgive me. I'm trying to figure out the logistics here. I don't have much in my yak while transporting. I get to the launch, unload yak and put it on the wheels. Than load it up and walk it to the water. Than what? Unload yak and take wheels off? Drag it in the water til wheels are floating? Try to lift fully loaded yak with one arm and undo cart with the other? What about in arrival from water to shore? Unload yak, hook up wheels, reload yak? What's your routine and which cart do you use? Thanks

I use a scupper type cart [I forget which brand]. It works great. I roll the empty kayak to the water, then carry my equipment by hand.

While most kayaks are bulky and can be at times heavy, getting one of these best kayak carts will help reduce your load that makes for a great kayaking experience.

I use a cart with the big fat soft wheels, and I love it. But I rarely use it at the launch because I try to unload close to the water. But when that is not possible I put the kayak on the cart close to the stern. I have to lift a heavier weight to walk it to the launch, but once there I drop the bow and then lift the stern off the cart. It only takes a small lift to free the cart.

Whenever I do that, I always promise myself I will stop bringing so much stuff!

I also have a scupper-hole cart for a Hobie kayak, and that is more trouble when used as above. I sometimes think I will shorten the uprights so it is not as difficult to lift off the cart.
