Thoughts on parts suitable for a kayak cart

Looking for thoughts/kit siutable for a cart to transport a heavy fishing kayak/gear to and from the beach. I was thinking of a hoverboard on steroids with a long T handle to the bow and the cart sitting at a balance point. Probably 300lb max weight. Salt water proof for a few seconds at launch and retrieval. Getting old but don't want to give up kayaking yet. Building the structure is not a problem. Would use 13-16" wheels. Thank you
Thank you, parts ordered. I will post a pic and follow up as I continue. Is there a specific wire you recommend for extending to controller

The controller's battery wires and motor wires are 14 gauge, and its other wires are 22 gauge. 


We use and sell automotive grade primary wire for making wire extensions since this type of wire is engineered for use in vehicles. 


For extending the battery pack wires or motor wires we normally use 12 gauge wire, and for extending the other wires we use 22 to 18 gauge wire depending on which gauge we feel is best for the particular application. 


We are very particular about the wire that we use and sell and for larger gauge wires, we carry pure copper multistrand automotive primary wire with extremely abrasion and heat resistant cross-link polyethylene insulation. Our smaller gauge wires have vinyl insulation which is more flexible than polyethylene and we choose smaller gauge wire with a high copper strand count so it can handle repeated bending without breaking. 


Please let us know if you have any questions.
