Does the canvas bag on the trolley tear when fully loaded?

Is the stabilizing leg closest to you when pushing?
On the 'User Guide' supplied with your folding Kart shows that the leg should be on the side that you push from. As you push the leg towards the ground pushing the trolley Kart forward a few inches the leg then opens against itself giving you stability to load that side of the Kart first before loading the other end.

Do you make a smaller trolley as I have a small boat and not a large locker area?
You should be able to store either sized folding Kart in even the smallest boat. It was designed so that the wheels could be removed and packed away in the internal zipper compartment. This allows The Kart to be stored under the bunk or cupboard of any sized boat or yacht.
