ManitouCruiser beefs up an already beefy Paddle Boy Heavy Lifter portage cart and goes with a through axle and 16" wheels. Rolls like a dream...
I think this will either be MC's 3rd time across Florida by cart, and has at least that many up in Michigan on the UHH and Bushwacker events.
Here is the shot of his handle. The cart and 16" wheels offer a better height to the handle and levels the boat out when in tow. The handle has a duel purpose... yep you guessed it; a push pole for those tight shallow spots when you don't want to ding up your paddle.
The pole attachment is pretty simple. padeye through some aluminium stock doubled up' make for a ridged stout system. The line you see is the bow line unrelated to the operation of the portage handle.
