Bought it to move odds and ends from my car to the boat. Have had no probs with it, really like how thin it is folded and how securely it locks in the open position. Depending on where you roll it, the wheels are adequate but on rough uneven surfaces slightly larger wheels would be nice, otherwise no complaints! Better product than I expected!

Seemed a great idea. Could keep in my car for a long haul to my marina dock and boat. Big help for groceries, small gear. But, too flimsy for anything but very smooth terrain/travel. Bumping over ramps and docks quickly took it's toll. West Marine nicely refunded my money.

      Have saved us time searching for dock carts. so strong it will carry a case of water in bottom. Folds up to use very little space.

          Had one for years and it finally gave out. Had to get another one. Folds into such a small package that I carry it around in my trunk all them time. Well worth the price.

            Comments about Folding Boat Cart:

            I have beaten the snot out of several carts and have been impressed by the performance of these carts. I have carted WAY too much weight (80-100 lbs) in them with SCUBA tanks and other equipment, extended distances, and the carts lasted a surprising length of time before cracking and breaking. One lasted several years. This isn't the greatest cart of all-time, but I feel these carts are as durable and well made as can be expected at this price. I would highly recommend them if you're carting 30-40lbs in groceries or other lighter sailing/boat gear. As for me, I think I'll finally upgrade to something that can handle all of my heavy stuff.

              We had two - in both cases, well within the year warranty period, the wheels started to fall off. In addition, the first one's chassis holding the axle broke right in half. We never had anything heavier than our laundry in these carts.

              We DO NOT recommend them.

                          Comments about Folding Boat Cart:

                          I purchased this cart for bringing items from my vehicle in marina parking lot to my boat slip - mostly groceries, water, soda, etc. There are around 10 steps connecting the land and dock ramps but they are well spaced and quite deep. I thought i would be able to wheel the cart down these steps without issue as i do with a fully loaded collapsible ice chest. Unfortunately this folding cart is only good for hauling bread if there's steps involved.

                          The plastic is very thin and after only a couple trips back and forth the plastic is cracking where it meets the handle and the bottom panel appears to now be bowing allowing the bottom to fall out.

                          For the price it's okay, but don't count on it providing more than a seasons use.

                          Excellent service and delivery - always from West Marine!

                              Use for moving stuff from the car to the dock. Like that it is compact when folded up. Wheels are too small to bridge the gap between the docks and over gravel.
