Canoe or Kayak Cart Plans

If you have a canoe, kayak, or a small boat that needs to be moved from one location to another with any regularity, you will understand how important a set of wheels can be.

Canoe cart, kayak, and boat plans

We recently purchased a cottage on Lake Erie. We generally leave our canoe down by the beach, but rough weather will often require that we bring it back up the hill to our cottage.  The haul can be quite a chore and turns a 3 minute walk into a 15 minute job with stops and starts (and a lot of huffing and puffing when we are done).   After the last trip, the need for a set of canoe wheels became clear.

Since I am a woodworker, and I build many items, I decided to locate a plan for the canoe, kayak, boat cart.  The following plan is not very detailed, but it is a very nice simple design.  The builder walks you through the steps, but you will have to come up with your own dimensions.  This isn’t a bad thing since you might be building this cart for a specific boat/craft.
