That one's neat, but you need to be in the water for it to work right. A guy named Ramon Castro did a Hobie cart mod that helps you install the cart on dry land without tilting the kayak on it's side. My kayak only weighs 61 pounds, but after paddling for miles, it's hard to pick up high enough to put my cart underneath. I rigged my cart with screweyes, and I put the cart next to my kayak, lift the kayak on top of it, run two bungees with hooks down thru the rear scupper holes onto the hooks. The upper end of the bungees are attached to the kayak, with tension, and when I lift the rear of the kayak, the bungees pull the cart up into the scupper holes. Works like a charm.
I'll try to post the link here: #romancastrovlog #kayakfishing #sandiegofishing If it doesn't link, Google him up.
His method works. If I had a heavy Hobie, I'd certainly use something like that.
