No-wheel kayak transportation: just drag it, by Jeff McGovern

How easy is this. The W500 acts like a very stable sled on land so it a piece of cake to get where you need it to hit the water. This boat is fully loaded for the day – one trip from the truck to the launch. No wheels, carts, pulleys or having the carry it. When I fish with other anglers if we all arrive a the same time I’m normally on the water on the way by the time they even get rigged up. I still believe the best plan is one trip from the truck to the water
Simple as can be and no lifting involved.

  1. Thanks Jeff,

    Indeed, unless you need to transport your W kayak over abrasive surfaces such as asphalt or concrete pavement for long distances, just dragging it on the ground is an easy and most convenient solution.
    Tip: If you drag this kayak by a long leash attached to the two carry handles in the front, it slides better on the ground – like a sled. This is due to the fact that its weight is dispersed evenly on the entire surface of the bottom of its hulls. I sometime carry it this way in the woods.

  2. Dragging this yak over mud is even easier cause it slides better 😉

  3. Just drag it on the ground like a sled. It’s so easy. I’ve seen people do it with traditional kayaks too, but it’s easier with the w500.
