Very cool and quite a load Chuck. Seems quite appropriate for that part of the country.

When I was looking for alternative carts for dragging my boat up and down the steep hill I live on I found some really neat bike trailers... just a thought. Ha.

Nice topic,
here are my experiences:

Smal foam wheels weren't up to the task.
Paddle served as a cart handle-bad idea when braking downhill (I live on top of the hill)

I stil have to make some iprovements, it is obvious that end of the boat(in this case bow) will scrape the road when riding over speeed bumps, curbs and alike
With this stup, unfolded is only way to go.

ere is a pic of our tandem bike pulling and old east german Opa built trailer with a wayland amazon xxl inside - the trailer weighs about 70kg and the boat 72kg plus a tent n stuff was probably around 150kgs on the back. We pedalled around 100kms from luckau in germany to Erkner near berlin over two days, then joined a club paddle for a sensational week paddling.
