Kayak Cart

Can anyone recommend a kayak cart? I want to do the hike out to the Boreas Ponds via Golf Brook Rd and want to bring my kayak. My kayak is fiberglass, 11.6 ft, and 35lbs.

Take a look at this thread: http://www.adkforum.com/showthread.php?t=22950

There are a few other threads, search on canoe cart or kayak cart in this forum and you should get other hits.

Cart

Google "kayak cart" and look for a Seattle (something or other). I found one for $107 (usually $149). I use it to load my 132# 10 foot jon boat on and off my utility trailer. Some of the reviews say that this cart is not solid. I have no trouble loading and moving my boat, the 71# battery, fishing equipment and the trolling motor from the trailer to the launch site with it. It MIGHT be a little more than you really need for a 35# kayak, but the 16 inflatable tires should bounce over anything you encounter on the trail.

---but read the reviews. Some people have experienced problems and soft tires.

I have a Suspenz Smart End Airless Large Cart and like it very much.

My kayaks are 45 pounds and the cart handles them well. I don't go long distances with it, but it does great on loose gravel but only so-so on sand. The nice thing is it folds relatively flat and you should be able to stow it easily. The wheels are solid so no need for air! I bought mine at Mountainman Outdoors in Old Forge.

Yes you can. I spoke with DEC R5 folks extensively about Boreas Ponds last week. Foot traffic only, no bikes for now.

And Schip, I have a Paddleboy cart and my boat is 32-pounds. I used it in the 90-miler a few years ago and have also used it going into a few back-country trout ponds. Gulf Brook Road is a highway compared to some of the places I've used this cart and so far its held up well.
