Many outdoors enthusiast who use kayaks or canoes to travel along the ocean or rivers, have the main issue of transporting the kayaks along with all accessories needed for the ocean time. With a fully loaded kayak (motors, safety gear, etc.) would weight between 70-140 pounds. Depending on what else you want to do, such as fishing, there's more gear needed. Our project aims to assist in bringing all the gear to and from the vehicles to the docks or beaches. The caddy will then be able to fold down and become a backpack to then carry back to your vehicle or to carry with you on the kayak.
