I had purchased a Sea to Summit scupper cart a few years ago, but decided that lifting and turning over a loaded kayak just was not feasible. I modified the cart by cutting off the scupper tubes inserts and replaced them with pvc designed to hold several kayaks that I owned. The attached pics show my latest mod where I used aluminum angle to widen the tire spacing to about 36" and I added a 1 1/4" pvc base on top to support the kayak. This allows one to easily place the kayak cart near the balance point, strap it down securely, and easily cart a heavily loaded kayak from pickup truck to launch point. I like that the wide wheel spacing allows the kayak to sit lower while carting but with enough clearance for the rudder to clear the ground. I was considering installing the Boonedox Landing Gear, but in addition to the cost of the gear I was not willing to add a constant 14 pounds to my already heavily loaded Slayer Propel 13. My most challenging issue so far is lifting the front of the Propel to insert the cart without grinding the rudder into the ground. I presently use the pvc stand that is pictured below to keep the rudder in the clear while positioning a cart. I'm considering the BerkleyPro steering upgrade that should allow me to swing the rudder horizontally and out of the way while inserting the cart.
