Have you used it? Wondering if it would need a few more cross supports. I have a 16ft yak @ 75lbs empty.

Yes I have used it the support is fine for my kayak however I need to add something "grippy" to add traction.
I used bicycle grip tape so the kayak doesn't slide off the pvc. Also a ratchet strap to keep the two together as we drag it back to the truck.

The trails we have to use are ROUGH-my next upgrade is wheelbarrow tires to "float" over the sand and rocks better than the wheels you and I have currently.

Great job, looks really good!
