  1. I think you're referring to this thread.

    Yes, I used my Wheeleez cart at Cape Henlopen State Park. I went from the parking lot to past the store, past the pavilion, and down the narrow path on sandy slope. The cart did fine with the heavy Hobie Outback. In fact, I've never had any problems on any sand so far. The PVC frame is pretty sturdy and the high capacity balloon wheels roll well.

    Hey Tufnik,

    I read a post of yours about using a Wheelez kayak cart at Cape Henlopen. I "had" a homemade kayak cart and tried using it to take my loaded Manta Ray 14 down to the water at Cape Henlopen State Park (at the point, where you have to walk it uphill and in deep sand). Needless to say the cart broke into about 3-4 pieces. Have you taken your Wheelez cart up that sand hill at the point? Please give my cell a call whenever you have a minute 440-227-1664.

    Thanks,
    Matt
