Got to try it out for the first time today.
My previous cart, a Malone Scupper cart died in anguish beneath the crushing awesomeness of the Adventure Island. I modified it to get me through the weekend, then tossed it.
C-Tug got here Wednesday.
Nothing much to say other than its great. Ive taken apart and put together the cart about 6 times now, and I can do it in about 30 seconds. The entirety of the cart when disassembled will fit fore of the AI front hatch, I was easily able to fit the cart, my 30L dry bag, and still slide in my fly rod (2 piece).
I placed the cart just behind the rear aka bar, it handled the fully assembled AI with all my gear and ice chest aboard just fine (~150 pounds), even over rough terrain and sand, Not surprising considering its rated for three hundred pounds.
I like it better than a scupper type cart because when I reach the water, I can just unstrap it, keep hold of one of the straps, lift the rear of the boat just a bit and pull the cart out from under it. Loading it is just as easy, set the kick stand, position the cart next to the boat, and just lift the boat onto the cart, adjust, strap down, and roll.http://youtu.be/gNmeRIPUrQA
From Early this morning, Excuse my choice of music, couldn't help it
Ive read some people complaining about the straps it comes with.. They are a bit complicated to initially assemble, but they really do work great. I had to search YouTube for a video on how the initially assemble the straps, the provided instructions sucked.
Its a nice cart, will work on any boat (haven't tried it on my sea kayak yet, but its only 45 pounds).
I have the regular pneumatic tires, but as I understand it there are solid tires available, as well as some beach type tires.
