My scupper cart punched holes in my scuppers and caused me to sink out on the Sonoma Coast. I don't care if I have to carry my shit over my head from bnow on, never using a scupper cart again. good luck.

If you are handy you can order just the wheels from wheeleez and fabricate your own cart to however you want it to be.  With the price north of $250 for a kayak cart, you might as well build something specific to your needs with stainless fasteners, aluminium conduit, foam padding, and nylon webbing.  If I hadn't gotten in on a group buy years ago at a great deal I would have gone in that direction.  I do have the single wheel cart for my G2 and its perfect for that kayak where a standard wheeleez kayak cart wouldn't work very well.

Just keep pressure off of the scuppers for the reasons mentioned by others.

As AlsHobieOutback said Hobie's have reinforced scupper openings and are designed to take plug in their carts.
My first post is specific to Hobie kayaks because that's all I own.  They had cracking issues in older models and corrected this by reinforcing the outer scupper holes with a plastic sheath. I use the plug in cart for short hauls only.  I wouldn't use for it going up and down a hill like at GS.

If I owned another kayak brand I'd use Wheeleez.  Overall Wheeleez is the best way to go.

like fishingaddict...I have both the heavy duty scupper cart as well as the wheelez. I like the plug in cart since its faster to load than the wheelez.

I saw this video of how to put the hd cart into the kayak in the water...pretty sweet!!



but like everyone mention, the hobie made a reinforce scupper to prevent damage.

I guess i'll be bringing my wheelez up to GS next week for that long haul up the hill  :smt010
