    I just bought two of those, they are great and i can hardly wait to try them out.

    After looking at a dizzying array of carts, I found this and am planning on attempting it: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=r7mdxaMPcuk

    Perhaps it is worth a try before buying an expensive cart. I also read from Old Town that scupper carts cannot be used on the Sportsman and Bigwater.

    Also, I should mention that when I was researching which kayaks to buy, I watched a lot of videos by a charter Captain named Nick of Navarre Kayak Fishing. He uses OT kayaks in his business and he designs and makes improvements for them.

    I ended up purchasing three of these bolts he designed: https://navarrekayakfishing.com/shop/old-town-rudder-bolt/

    They fit perfectly on the Sportsman Salty and Bigwater, and the company from whom we bought the kayaks installed them for me.

    Our salesman actually called the other day and told me about how impressed they were with the bolts and how much better the rudders were with them installed.

    I’ve found that the feeling of being right there with the fish is unparalleled.

    Found an ember Old Town Sportsman 120 PDL and decided to make the hellacious drive to get it. It’s mine!

    PFD is on the way, need to decide on a cart!

    Get long runners for underneath your hull so you don’t dent it where the horse’s are
