IK hauling carts

Has anyone made a cart for hauling an IK at home and if so how did you do it. The cheapest version on Amazon seems to be going for $30 but isn't perfect for this purpose.

Thanks for any info on this.

How do you paddle your boat if you don't have any arms?...I mean you must be handicapped to need a cart to move a 30lb boat.

To move the boat over distances of upto half a mile or so when the car can't get in all the way.....

I've seen people create some carts with a couple good wheels, a metal tube and a couple bungee straps to hold it on, but it's just easier to put it on your back, with your arms through the thigh straps unless you have a bunch of gear with you.

That would work for a shorter boat but I am talking about a Tomcat and if I did that the lower end would just drag on the ground, defeating the purpose.

There are some canoe carts that should work. Sturdy frame with oversized tires.

You flip the IK around, so it sticks way above your head, rather than drag. You'll look like you are in a banana suit.

We have a stretch that is runnable most of the year with a one and a quarter mile trail next to it.You have to carry back from where it dead ends at a restricted reservoir.A guy who ducky's it alot , sometimes has a cheap dolly looking thing on the back deck of his Force.You will fight the terrain if it is not a good trail.Just shouldering the boat is the norm.Usually you can't carry the boat upright because of the dragging you mentioned,or if it sticks up too much snagging on tree limbs.Carry it by the thigh strap like a hardshell uses the cockpit rim, on your side parallel to the ground,or put the upside down boat on your head ,parallel to the ground ,and use the thigh straps for holds.I have carried as much as three miles and over a mile and a half in tropical heat/humidity.Yeah it kind of sucks but you just do what you have to do.

I think this is the one my buddy has. Narrow enough for most trails.
