This is the Rolls Royce of kayak carts, it feels like sleeping on an all goose-down pillow and it costs as much too. Unlike stern-carts, this one is meant to be used in a central position in relation to the boat sitting right under your cockpit, so it takes the entire weight of the kayak! The result is that you barely guide the rig with one hand at the bow or stern, and the cart does the rest. The construction isn't the highest quality, since it’s just plastic and aluminum (as opposed to kevlar and titanium) but it gets the job done. The 2 strap, 2 support-platform system cradles kayaks of all shapes, and it is very gentle on my kayak. It is ready for easy disassembly if you want to put it into a hatch and take it with you although there is no way it would fit in there without disassembly. You can get this directly from Davis’s web site or you can find the same thing marketed as “Happy’s Wheel-a-weigh” kayak cart on Amazon for cheaper.
