Road Trip End. Now to get Your Kayak to the Water

Ok. You followed my advice and used an approved rack system to safely transport your kayak to a favorite paddling site. Congratulations! Now, how do you get it safely (read no back injuries!) to the water's edge? Well; if it is light enough, and many single seat kayaks weigh in the 25lb - 35lb range, you can easily carry it to the water.

But what about those heavier models - like my tandem Mainstream Escapade that weighs in at 65lbs? Two persons can carry these heavier kayaks since most models have convenient bow and stern handles.
And; if you are going solo, you can utilize a canoe / kayak dolly that allows one person to easily pull the boat to the water's edge for your next paddling adventure!

How do you get your kayak to the water's edge?
