First buy a furniture trolley from
Super Cheap Auto for $19.50
Then attack it with an angle grinder and cut the plate off
Cut the handles to whatever length you would like


Then attach some straps and some foam padding
Test fit it to the canoe

And there ya go. Cost including trolly, foam and straps approx $30


What am I going to do with the leftover bits?

My workshop

Perhaps I could buy some wheels and make a furniture trolley for a really short person.
The whole job took just 2hrs including a trip to the hardware shop.
