I would guess this is nothing new but I did tweak it a little and thought I would share with you all. I am calling it the cart cradle, I removed the post collars clamps because I never liked the way they supported only a small area with such a heavy load like the AI :smt009. So I cut and drilled a piece of plastic and replaced the post collars with 1 tubing if you check out the pics you will see way I called it the cart cradle, and the best part it floats :smt003.

I think that makes more sense with regard to load distribution than the tennis ball thing.

Id like to figure a way to add some simple scupper posts to the wheelez for those simple launches it would be nice to not have to strap it down

Great idea Pat. This is perfect timing too. I just purchased the same cart specifically for transporting the kayak from water to car. (The AI is too heavy to load on my Wheelez at the launch ramp by myself, so Mel suggested this Hobie cart to me.) I installed the collars and was thinking to myself how in the world could those things hold the weight of a fully loaded AI without breaking the scupper? I think I would add a think foam pad to the starboard.

Thanks for saving me from reinventing the wheel!

I like it Pat. I made my own cart with SS and then I lined the upright tubes with thinwall PVC to help protect the inside of the scuppers. I like how that should help distribute the weight for relief.
