I built this a few years ago. I always used to portage my canoe on my back but am getting too old for that macho ****. So, a couple of low impact go cart tires instead of those stupid bicycle tires on the commercial carts that dig deep ruts in the trails. The whole thing only weighs about 15 pounds and disassembles with a few thumbscrews so it lays flat in the bottom of the canoe.

All of 1" square thinwall steel tube, oxy/acetylene welded.


The cart, goes amidships on the canoe.

Wierd,

It's starting to cool down here. I figured it's about time I put on the shirt. It's been hanging in closet all summer. The snow level this weekend is only a 1000 feet above us.

Funny, I think the trailer tongue is too short, it'll fishtail at 80 behind the truck..

Ha.. Nice job..

I thought of putting an electric motor on the cart. Tail wheel on the canoe. Drive along the portages. Only problem is there is a 60lb weight limit as to how much you may carry in the canoe. I weigh a bit more than that.
