collapsible shopping cart?

How do people manage toting items back to the boat after a shopping trip? I see Drake (Paragon) walk around with backpacks. Some rent cars, perhaps others have the items delivered. I thought a collapsible shopping cart might be handy for carry groceries, bulky items and perhaps cans of fuel. Anyone using a cart and if so which one and how is it holding up? I looked at some on line and can't tell if they would be suitable for the intended task.

Re: collapsible shopping cart?

A boat neighbor of mine is pretty happy with this one. It looks like it would carry quite the load and folds up small enough. The metal is not stainless, but his is holding up pretty well.

Re: collapsible shopping cart?

A lot of marinas around here provide a few of these to share. The nice thing is you can balance heavy loads over the two wheels like you would with a dolly, make it quite easy to push or pull. Typically, we just lug our own stuff in bags to the dinghy, but if we have a particularly heavy item--say a battery--this would work really well.

Re: collapsible shopping cart?

I like the Cabela's wagon, it has what looks like wide tires which are important in dirt and sand. And one can get it in green instead of camo and it has two cup holders. Seems everything with wheels now a days comes with cup holders.

Caberg, not sure if the marina would be happy seeing me walk out of the facilities with one of their carts on my way to the grocery store. I've used those carts before, they are a back saver.

Re: collapsible shopping cart?

We had one of these for years,until the salt finally ate it up.
Called a 'beach cart' it was COLLAPSIBLE, and yet with the big wheels it would go anywhere easily. It was rated at 75#, but I'm sure we overloaded it sometimes.
I would love to find another.

Re: collapsible shopping cart?

I used my music gear cart, which has held up for more than 20 years. It's made of painted steel, but fairly rust resistant, fold flat and stores out of the way against the bulkhead.

When I had use of a bicycle in Marathon, the ride to the grocery store was about 2 miles, which provided me with some much needed exercise. I purchased a plastic storage box from Home Depot, wire tied it to the back fender rack and it held about 35 pounds of groceries with no problem. When I had more, or made a stop at the liquor store, that's where the backpack came in handy.

All the best,

Gary

Re: collapsible shopping cart?

There are shopping buses that pick up from the dinghy docks and visits the major stores.

A back pack a coolbag for the frozen stuff and a forever bag from a French chain store does me.

The Fast Manicou delivers to the boat so beer/wine/soft drinks by the case are sorted.

It is Grenada and the living is easy.

I have just given away my shopping trolley I used it once in 7 years. It had small wheels though.

Re: collapsible shopping cart?

Though rather small and limited, I've been happy with a file cart. However, they are very small to store, and it can carry a 5-gallon jerry can easily. They last a few years. West Marine sells them for more()

I was thinking of something similar. I had thought a folding milk crate strapped to a folding dolly could work.

I like the office depot price. There several one star reviews complaining about the flimsy handle. Also the wheels look small. I like the small folded profile. I found one beach cart that had wheels like the lunar rover and priced pretty close to a piece of NASA equipment. With response so far it is reassuring that using one of these carts is not a bad idea.
