We just got back off of a five day camping trip. Our tent was about 50 yards from the lake. This dolly worked great for getting our kayaks and gear to the water. My wife is very small and she couldn't believe how easy it was for her to get her gear down this rocky trail and right to the waters edge....

Needed something to lug the old Coleman red canoe -it weighs about 90 lbs- this cart is well designed with a stabilizer leg that folds back when the canoe is set on top. the inflated tires are great for moderate terrain. this makes life easier to get the canoe to the water. as far as the tire smell, it is not a big deal- unless you want to bring the cart inside the house.

I am glad someone mentioned how stinky the tires are: as soon as this arrived, I opened the box and put the wheels outside. We store the cart outside, too They really stink.
The cart is awkward to store because it doesn't collapse much. On the plus side, though, that also means it won't fold up while you're trying to load your boat.
We use this for an 80# canoe. It makes moving the boat very easy, and the stinky tires handle uneven terrain well. I would recommend this to anyone who doesn't have a sense of smell or who can store it somewhere other than an enclosed space.
I understand your concern but I have total faith that this single cart can handle any kayak or canoe. It was built much stronger and sturdier than I had expected and the wheels and tires are also large and strong. Also keep in mind that this doesn't really have to bear the full weight of the boat. When properly placed toward the center, it acts as a fulcrum to displace the weight from one end to the other allowing you to easily pull and transport the boat from a handle at either end of the canoe (you may need to fashion a handle if one is not already there but that can be as simple as a rope loop at the top edge of the end of the canoe). Also, it is designed to be used alone and is very easy to turn or change direction as you pull with just the center located single cart. Adding another cart so you have one at each end would cause you to lose that ability to easily steer and control the boat and would almost certainly require two people to move the boat. It comes with two sturdy nylon web type straps that are very long and also strong enough to secure a heavy canoe to the cart. I'm confident that one cart will work well for you. Best of luck.
