Snap4T made something very similar to Flowrider's for me and I love it, especially with the heavyweight Predator XL on it.
My wheels are a bit closer together than flowrider's though, makes it easier to transport.
Definitely worth it for me.

Just add a further conversation. Now I have a lighter kayak ( the Kraken was a great fishing machine but heavy ) and I the C-Tug I had went with it. Is the smaller wheel Wheeleez cart ( $200ish) that much better or do I keep saving and go for the standard one at around $300?

I have the Wheeleez with the 30cm polyurethane wheels. I bought it second hand for under $300. If you want to give it a test run I can lend it to ya for the weekend.

I ended up getting aWheeleez Kayak Kart Mini, it is fantastic! The Stealth is so light and the bottom is flat so it works out perfectly. I can even store the whole thing below the deck too. 8)

Is this one of, the longest running post threads on the Forum ?...... :D :D :D .... been going for over 7 years now..!

Just to give you an update, the original Wheelez trolley that I originally posted is still going strong.... well... at least it was the last time I used it !

Just breathing life again into this post....
I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on a set of wheelez, but just have a couple of questions.
I have switched to an OK Trident 15, which weighs plenty plus some, the C-Tug is fine on firm smooth surfaces, but anything soft, or rough and it's more than a small challenge.
Last Sunday came into Kaiaua at low tide, and those lovely baby head rocks made the C-Tug all but unusable.
In reading through here, and having a search online, it looks like the Wheelez will do the trick.
So....
Will the Kayak Cart Mini be up to the task? And if not, does anyone know if the wheels of the Kayak Cart will fit in the front hatch of the OK?
You're aware that while it affords one the momentary illusion of satisfaction, the spewing of bile is never a permanent solution.

Good to see this thread “rolling along” still....

Sorry but can’t comment other than to say that I used / use the wheelez on a Viking 440 loaded up with all manner of stuff, including a boot full of fish... nowadays..when it’s used, it sits under a Reload
