That is the kitchen I put in the yak.

Actually I could not see that until I posted I didn't see how to remove it.

Nice build. Where did you get those wheels, and how are they in the soft sand? I've been trying to find something less expensive than the wheeleze. Plowing the sand with a loaded kayak wears me out.

They look like the wheels on a kids monster truck.

They are wheels off a kids electric rider toy.  It is a little tall so I'm cutting 5" off the risers. I used electrical pvc conduit. Haven't pulled it thru the sand yet but do not expect it to be an issue. I did make a brass bushing so if the axel won't turn the wheel will on the rod. Just incase sand gets in side the sealed axel. I'm adding caps and eyes on the elbows to strap the yak to the cart. I think I have between 30 to 40 bucks in it.

Looks like one i made a few yrs ago. But I had issues trying to get my yak ONTO the cart, especially when I returned to the beach with a full loaded yak. I'd suggest some kind of kickstand that holds it in place when trying to load your yak onto it. Love the big wheels idea!

I already did that just not pictured. Putting a yak should not be a problem as I don't fish alone. We help each other out with that. My worst worry is coming in because I can't get out of yak fast due to stiffness because of age. Having a team to help to store stuff before landing will take care of most stuff.
