    Default Kayak cart for $4

    With the nice weather here, I got to thinking about getting out my kayak.

    Mine is 14 1/2 ft long and weighs about 60 lbs so it is a bit of work to get it down off the wall and out to the car.

    Went to a kayak show last month and saw lots of kayaks and carts to help move them around.

    The started at $55 and went up. Of course I figured I could make one cheaper but as usual, I got involved with another project.

    Then my neighbor tossed out his old boat seat.

    The back frame was the perfect shape for the cart so I started.

    Took about 1 1/2 hours to finish.

    Quick and easy project.

    Cost was $3 for the 1/2-13 bolts and nuts and $1 for the swim noodle from the dollar store. Had the wheels from an old lawn spreader.

    I am finding lots of other uses for the cart to move large stuff around when I am by myself.

    Here are some photos of the cart with the kayak on it.

    Had to get the cart back from a friend who borrowed it to move a stack of plywood.

    It's nice when a project goes well and works nicely.

    My usual designs cause lots of cussing and rework but that's why we do it ourselves.
