If you have to transport your kayak from your vehicle to the water, then one of the kayak carts below will not only make your life easier, but also help to prevent damage to your kayak.
As the popularity of kayak angling has taken off, we have also seen an increase in the amount of angling specific kayaks hitting the market. These kayaks typically come with all kinds of extras and features to assist anglers out on the water. From gear tracks to extra storage, pedal drives and more, there's no denying that all these features have contributed towards making the hobby more accessible to anglers. However, as with most things, there is also a downside to all these extras, namely the weight of the kayaks. It has been a constant battle for manufactures to load their kayaks with extras and design them to be durable while also keeping the weight down. Some have succeeded admirably in this endeavor, while others have been less successful. If you have to transport your kayak from your vehicle to the water, then one of the kayak carts below will not only make your life easier, but also help to prevent damage to your kayak.
