I've been looking at the kayak carts people have been making and come up with a idea at work today.
I have got all the parts from a victa lawn mower and started cutting and welding on my lunch break.
I don't think it will be as flash as the others I’ve seen but I thought when you have mower parts everywhere a angle grinder and a mig welder It's worth a try.

Thanks troy,
I tryed it over the weekend and it works great.
I gave it a bit of a test and I dont think it will fall apart but if I get salt water on it it would probably rust fairly easy.

Good effort with the cart Sam. Those wheels might struggle a bit in the soft sand though.

Nice one Sam, and alternaive wheel might be the wide Hard plastic Golf buggy wheels. The Hobie's basic cart uses those and I have found them good on both sand and hard surfaces

thanks guys.
yes the wheels might struggle in sand, I'll have to have a look around at some others and see what I can come up with.
here is how I secure the yak to the kart.
