  • 1. An Essential Guide to Homemade Kayak Carts Kayak carts are used to conveniently move a kayak vessel on land. Kayakers use this device widely since the vessels are initially made for water sports. These contraptions are characterized as temporary wheels that can be attached to the vessel. More often than not, they feature several types of wheels and frames. Depending on the model of the kayak, you can determine which shape and size of wheels and frames are most suitable for the water vessel. Homemade kayak carts are commonly built and used by kayakers since they are highly customizable which is ideal for personal use. Things to Consider before creating Homemade Kayak Carts: To build kayak cart accurately, a kayaker must always predetermine what he wants and what he needs from a kayak cart. Since homemade kayak carts are pulled by hand like most kayaks, the builder must cautiously evaluate his strength and endurance before he will build kayak cart mounts. At times wherein the kayaker feels his strength is not enough to pull a kayak by hand, there are kayak carts, which can be attached to a bicycle for easier vessel hauling. Not only should you consider personal factors, but you should also consider what type of kayak cart is best suited for your water vessel. Types of Kayak Carts : A Plug-in kayak cart is an extremely easy and stable cart system. It has wheels mounted on a frame which is usually made of steel. The key feature of a plug-in kayak cart is the upright posts which will be the primary connection of the kayak cart and the kayak itself. Although plug-in kayak carts are great for stability and convenience, they can only be used for specially designed kayaks that have plug-in holes so the upright posts can fit in them. This is why a plug-in kayak cart is not the best choice for homemade kayak carts. A better way to approach homemade kayak carts is to consider the strap kayak cart model. It utilizes straps to secure the kayak to the kayak cart while the vessel rests on a cradle like frame. This is a quite easy way to build kayak cart since less materials it needs. Nonetheless, precise measurements are needed to be done for the frame must fit the bottom of the kayak perfectly. A folding kayak cart is highly convenient and space efficient. It is compact and lightweight compared to other types of carts. In spite of this, the downside to this kind of kayak cart is its low durability. It is also unreliable when it comes to rough terrains.
