Momarsh DP cart

Postby BDK » Mon Oct 21, 2013 10:09 am

Any one build or buy a cart to trasport the boat to water, here water so low gotta have some way to trnsport boat ramp 2oo yds from water. I bought a cabelas steel framed kayak cart but for the width of the boat it does not work well and put a woopin on me yesterday. I have a thought on improving it but wanted to see what yall have done . Thanks

Take a double wheel wheelbarrow and make a cradle for the DP by using the arms of the wheelbarrow as a support frame. All you need is for 1/3 of the DP front to sit on the wheelbarrow. Strap it down where it won't move and use the rear end of the DP to lift and steer with. Really simple and effective.

If you're talking to me, yes it does. It allows me to pull my 14x32 jon with PPF mm and decoys with very little discomfort. I came up with that so I can haul this combo in my toy hauler . Just one strap across the boat to an eye bolt on either side and good to go. Got the wheels from Northern tool .

I really haven't used it on rough terrain but it probably will work okay just tighten the straps down tight.

Thats the problem I have with the cart I have now you cant get it tight enough to stay secure on the boat when you have to role down a small drop or rough terrain

This one doesn't come loose if you tighten the straps snug Use a strap on both sides not over the boat with one strap.

This is what connects the axle to the wood.

Search homemade heavy duty kayak cart, build it to fit the dp, then center and balance it and lash it down with bungee cords, it will stay put. I built one for my Marsh Rat and it works fine.

Little tip, you can foam a tire with great stuff, ask me how I know?

Way back in the day, we built axles like threedogs has shown... We used mountain bike tires and a seatbelt to tighten. We used them some for getting the boats to water, but more for getting field decoys out into the field in the days before I could afford a 4-wheeler or ranger.

It was easier to load them into the boat and walk them out there than it was to carry them on my back. It was also before sleds were widely available. Balance your load and off ya go.

I was dumpster diving for treasure and found a mint condition wheel chair.
figured I could use the frame and wheels for my DP.
the only prob is using it on mud.
from the back of the truck to the water is works great.

Yep, I built one for the marsh rat and if you build it right, it will work, the tires and wheels are only $4 at Harbor Freight, but are thin, hence the tip on great stuff foam, just make sure you're wearing rubber gloves.

BDK,
do a search for Erich870. He also has a blog, http://alaskawaterfowlproducts.blogspot ... r-and.html he built an awesome cart for his Marsh Rat. I have just been using the Cabelas cart. I drilled some 2x4's on the support arms to work with the width of the Fatboy DP. It works.


cheers

$4 a tire, put on duals and slip a small inner tube over them to make them wider
