Does anybody have any ideas/pictures for a portage yoke for the ultimate 14.5? I'm headed to BWCA in June and I really like fishing from my kayak (And, it'll save me $47/day in rental costs!). I've seen the cart designs here but I don't think they'll work on those rocky portage trails.

Welcome to the forum. Haven't seen someone fabricate a yoke for the Ultimate yet but imagine hauling it on your shoulders for much of a distance wouldn't be too enjoyable, at 69 lbs. I have toted the discontinued 36 lb Tegris one mile before and that was OK but carting would be preferable in my opinion.

A few factors that may help decide is length of portage, gear weight, and how often you think you'd need a cart?

Found out that carts are forbidden in the BWCA. I'm building one anyway as it will be nice to have. I'm working out a portage yoke using pvc and will post pics if it works. Again, I'd welcome ideas/pictures from the group here, thanks
