: Picture 1: Can we get more info on the cart (Wheels), I hate to spend $100 on
: a cart. I built my boat I ought to be able to build a decent cart. I built
: the one from CLC using their plans and find it to be unusable when loaded
: with all my gear. The wheels need to be bigger and located at the CG of
: the boat. The higher the better as it's easier to pull when up high.

The cart shown in the first photo looks like it has the same wheels as we use here (in NZ). I've dragged a loaded double on sand using those wheels and often a loaded single for some distance on firmer surfaces.

As far as height, the lower the better, more stable, smaller pieces to stow.

The cart shown doesn't look good, complicated, too high, flimsey and I don't know how you would load a kayak on to it single handed. My own design gets round all those problems and quite a number have been built.
