What a brilliant design for firmly attaching the canoe to the cart … except for the major flaw …
… the sewn on buckles don’t pass through the sliders … the male buckle on the right slides off but the doubly sewn one on the left doesn’t. So I’ll have to cut it off and resew it.
That’s one redone.
Both straps redone. Ready to embrace the canoe!
A double-sided embrace
All the way across …
Straps a bit long but ok. Not scraping on anything. (I should have checked though…)
Much more stable for all those portages around the weirs of the Loire!
The red exercise mats have been cut to fit the seats … for more comfy derières.
