    An easy solution would to use an already existing design to construct your own. Example in pic for reference. Not my pic.

    There are a lot of interesting designs around for just this type of work. Search this forum a bit, as I seem to recall there being a nice discussion last fall.

    I recently found an image of a workable, and seemingly easy to build trailer that could be adapted for a kayak here: http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7285/8...e40ebec9_o.jpg

    There's not much detail, but if you email Vik, I'm sure he'd share the dets.

    I have a Bikes at Work trailer, and can easily reconfigure it to haul my kayak. All I have to do is move the axle module to the rear of the trailer instead of its usual middle position.

    My Bikes at Work trailer hauls more volume than a Bill or Ted trailer, and has a comparable weight rating, with a less-complicated hitch arrangement.

    And a lower price, IIRC...
