My DIY kayak storage cart

So after looking at lots of great setups that people have posted in FB groups I came up with this

It's a little ghetto but it's practical and less expensive than buying one.

Plus it’s very mobile and easy to push around the garage where I have very limited space.

Not at all, here you go


2 large Harbor Freight furniture Dolly’s ($12ea)

2 10’ x 3” ABS tubes ($20ea) Home Depot

8 sets of 5/16 nuts, bolts, fender washers & lock washers

Electrical tape

1/2” extended and standard length ratchet wrenches and sockets

5/16” drill bit

1” drill bit



It would be a good idea to have another person help out and take about 2 hours

It’s giong to be a pain to get the tube spacing right. I would recommend just resting the tubes on the Dolly’s and then sitting the kayak on top

Center it up as best as possible and mark the Dolly’s up where the tube sits with a straight edge

Take the kayak off and align the tubes to the marks
Drill the 5/16 bit through the tube, move it out of the way then drill through the wood. Take the 1” bit and drill through only the top 5/16” hole of the tube.

Put an end bolt in first so you can square thing up as much as possible. then do another end and then the middle bolts.

Take the 1/2” extended ratchet socket and insert the bolt head and fender washer. Tape the bolt/washer to the socket with a little tape so it don’t fall out when you put it in the tube and push through past the wood . Don’t tighten until you have the other bolts aligned and in place.

Do the same for the other side. Just take your time.
