The Seattle Sports Molly Kayak Cart is small and fits in most sea kayak hatches. Larger sit-on-tops may not fit the Seattle Sports Molly Kayak Cart very well. The thermal-molded, yellow body is eye-catching and extremely strong, able to haul 150 pounds. The Seattle Sports Molly Kayak Cart has a side-release buckle, a stainless steel axle, and 8 in. wheels.

I bought the Molly Kayak Cart primarily for its simplicity and it's diminutive size. I have not been disappointed in either respect. Nothing could be simpler than sliding the cart on the end of the kayak, hooking the strap to the edge of the cockpit to keep it in place, and then picking up the other end of the kayak to gently roll it where you want to go. There is no need to dismantle the cart to have it fit into the rear storage area of my Tsunami 140, a fact the makes it even simpler to use. I'd buy another one of these little beauties, except it seems very well made and I don't think it will ever fall apart and need to be replaced. Happy paddling and portaging.
The STRAP that wraps around the canoe was found to be too short. Straps needs to be 12" longer. The triangle connector does not allow me to replace the strap, thus the 2 star rating.
I run a kayak tour company and use the Molly Cart daily. My first group of Molly Carts I used heavily with only minor problems and they lasted for two years. I love them because they fit into the hold of my kayaks. About two years ago they switched the plastic they used on the hook (the old ones were made in the USA) to a cheaper version. Now the hooks break immediately and I have to modify them. I would pay more for a molly cart with a better hook system.
It took me only a little while to adjust the straps on the Molly Kayak Cart to achieve a secure fit, in preparation for pulling my kayak through my neighbor-hood about 1/3 mile to a launch site in one of the canals leading out to a large creek which empties into Little Assawoman Bay between Fenwick Island and Bethany Beach, DE. I haven't yet made the walk, but hope to when I return this week. I was surprised at how heavy the kayak seems when just pulling it thru the yard and up the street a little ways...and wondered whether there should be a cart under the bow of the kayak as well. Hopefully it will get easier in time.
