    Ghetto, but works...

    Finally upgraded my "pier cart". You may have noticed the guy with a green wheeled icebox being pulled with a pallet slat. Well I've finally upgraded to a PVC handle and two rod holders. Hopefully this will get me by until I stop fishing for a day and build a legit cart.

    If you ever got groceries with your stamps
    Pushed the buggy to your section 8 house
    Took the food in the crib,loaded your cooler and poles
    Then headed to the pier.....
    You know you ghetto!

    Thinking if doing something like this to my cooler because the handle is broken. Just wonder how well the pipe will hold a heavy cooler full of fish.

    That would be a Cedar Point special.

    Thanks pounder!
    Most weight I've had in it at once was a 10# king, 2gallons of ice, and half a dozen Spanish with no problems pulling. You can see it in action on Tuesday, Getting there around 8.

    Few years ago my pier cart was stolen and I went to the pier a few times using a wheeled cooler with all my gear sticking out of the back of it (without pcv). I got some laughs and photos, as I'm sure that was as ghetto as it gets.

    I now have back up pier carts in case that happens again, hah!

    You've taken time to add rod holders, so that's a pretty common setup. Not too shabby. Just keep the handle rinsed and greased so it doesn't rust or corrode.

    Last night I just modified a rolling cooler with handle, and added 4 rod holders. My brother and I have a cart but does not fit in my car, so when I cant use the Cart, I have a more compact alternative. Im satisfied, servers its purpose.
