Cart was easy to put together and works as designed. Larger style tires make it work better. It is so much easier to move my kayak with the Malone Xpress Scupper Kayak Cart.
I've got a love-hate thing going on with this cart. On the plus side, it's priced right, built very sturdey, lightweight and breaks down easily to stow in the hatch of my Tarpon120 with ease. Once installed it works very well! On the down side, (and I'm guessing this is true of all scupper carts) , it's a process to install coming off the water after a day of fishing. Read: drag yak up beach, empty EVERYTHING off, then flip the yak on it's side , install the cart and then reverse procedure. I'm thinking of adding a kick stand on it so I might be able to just lift the yak on /off if I can line up the cart posts and scuppers. If that doesn't work, I may switch to an end style cart that doesn't make me flip the cart to install it.
I have the Jackson Kayak Big Tuna model. This carrier doesn't work well at all for this kayak. The Big Tuna scuppers are regular holes at the top but underneath they are sort of oblong and tapered toward the stern. When the Malone carrier is inserted and the kayak put upright, the wheels fold under the kayak instead of being vertical. The carrier must be adjusted to the minimum width to fit any of the scupper holes at all and even so, it won't fit the ones closest to the stern. After adjusting to the smallest width the foam block no longer fits over the adjustment bar, you have to cut 3/4" off the foam if you want to use it and you really need to with the Big Tuna. With the foam in place you have a little support to prevent the wheels from jackknifing. With the wheels adjusted to the minimum width the kayak is now very easy to tip over.
We've been carrying our two person ocean kayaks down to the beach at our Mexico house. We just got the scupper kayak cart and it has made everything so much easier! The cushion in the middle keeps the kayak from rubbing on the axle, the hard tires move easily over both sand and rock. We attach the cart then strap the cooler ect and away we go. The kayak easily lifts off the cart once we get to the water. Love this product!
