Rigging Setup For Easy Fishing Kayak Transportation

Craig, Texas

Finally managed to get into the water this weekend! Saturday was a solo venture but on Sunday I brought my daughter with me. It is all you told me it was. Given my lack of experience, I was shocked at how easy it was to get around. Even with my 5’7″ fourteen year old daughter with me it was VERY stable. She wants one of her own now. I told her she could practice with mine and if she wanted to get into it, we’d talk.

I also built a prototype dolly. Water is about 200 yards from my house and needed a way to role it over. See pics. Making revisions and will make the final build this weekend. Is just swings up out of the way when you get to the water. Going to go with some lighter wheels and get rid of the metal eye hooks, but the concept works great. Kinda heavy at this point, but the revisions should knock a few pounds off. It got me to the water, which is the point of a dolly.

Also started working on a “roof.” Its coming along great and will forward pics. I think it will be a nice way to keep the sun off me when our fishing.
