Keith, looks good!  Just a suggestion--I would add a bow and stern line tied down to your bumpers for extra security.  They won't hold it on, but they will help avoid rocking and twisting.

Yeah. I was going to. But the ties i had were too small. Chip actually let me use his. I wasnt counting on the kayak being that big haha

Hahaha i know. My wife is gonna have our 5th kid in november. So were gonna be getting a suv with 3rd row seating as both of us dont want a van. So i get my truck back. I just gave it ro my wife and use my car pretty much exclusively to go to and from work.

Once i get the truck i can toss it in the bed and strap it down and be good to go.

Got the wife and I a couple new rides, nothing fancy but far more comfortable than our previous yaks.

We will be on the water Sunday!

Here is my ride.  (Ignore the bank trash.  Not mine.  I didn't see it until I looked at the picture.  I'd have picked it up).



Malibu Stealth 12.   Homemade transducer arm sticking in the air.

Are you using a scupper mounted cart or just a standard underslung cart?  The deep keel on mine has been interesting to work with carts.  the PVC/pool noodle cart worked really well for me.  The cart arms would sit right along the keel (parallel).  The other karts with arms perpendicular to the keel are more challenging as the carts are not usually deep enough to accommodate the deep malibu keel.   Straps were essential in that case with a snug fit.   

In both cases you have two techniques, use the cart to get the yak to the waters edge and then launch it, or roll the cart right into the water and launch the yak like you would launch a boat.  I've done both and the success of a "boat like" launch was highly dependent on cart.  My PVC cart did not stand up to a boat launch.

Mine isnt a scupper mounted cart. It does need straps. Im gon a have to play with it or just get a new one. But the keel is deeper. So it has to be strapped down. Need to buy the winch type though. The cheap ones thst came with it are garbage.
