I am not familiar with forums, but i have a question about building a kart for my FX 12.

I  have seen so many different type of DIY kart on Internet, but two models retained my attention.


First is the ABS tubing type (Looks like an H for top)

The second one is like the "Trail Trekker".

Any preference?

Trail Trekker is quick and easy to put in place and remove. Bungee will fit nicely to thwart behind seat. 


I use the Native cart. Very simple and fast to put any of the Propel model boats onto the Native cart. Most of the time I don't need to 'strap the yak in place' as it cradles onto the plastic top securely.

I vote for the Trail Trekker, I have the maximus model and it is worth every penny! Their customer service is also top notch!

I use carts to pull my YAK behind my golf cart. I learned the hard way (several times) to make sure that the wheels don't make contact with the hull.  I have burned friction holes in the hull ... one all the way through.  Just make sure your hull has really good wheel clearance and watch it continuously.  I have started out with good clearance but hit a bump, make a tight turn, etc ...and the hull can shift.   In which case it will be time to fire up the plastic welder. 


Just my thoughts.

If you want the very best cart, take a look at the BooneDox Landing Gear.

I use a Paddle Boy Cart with my Ultimate and it works great. I have the model with the air filled tires. But, it is still an "end cart" so load your gear on the end you're not lifting to pull from.

Check out the C-TUG new model...the "SANDTRAKZ" one!!  It had newly re-signed wheels that allow you to pull it thru sand and soft surfaces like mud with 30% less effort than their previous sand model... 


It is completely able to dismantle and store in a front hatch in 20 seconds or less....EVEN by a non-DIY guy like me!!

It is 99.9% and the wheels are now designed for soft sand and really any surface...and they can NEVER be flat. 

The kayak cushions/pads are adjustable for nearly any hull, which is a great feature for people with 2 or more kayaks.

Tool free assembly and take apart, and the capacity is 200#, and it only weighs 10#...

Comes with a strap, but due to those adjustable pads, it is rarely used!!

Check it out....I have kayak fished since 2004 and over 800 kayak trips and never wanted one, but since I live 2 blocks from the Atlantic Ocean, it is calling my name this year...
