kayak cart for getting to the lake

I've just bought myself a beautiful new sit on top kayak. We live very close to the lake and have temporarily rigged up an old shopping trolley (yes!) with a few octopus straps to help me get it to the water. But I'm going to need something a bit more sturdy.

Any ideas for either constructing something or for where to buy something that won't break the bank? I bought the kayak from Germany and in the heady rush of buying something so frivolous I didn't think about transportation. We really are only a few minutes walk from the lake but I'd rather conserve my energy for a bit of paddling instead of using it all up just to get the thing into the water.

Re: kayak cart for getting to the lake

I got one for my kayak at Decathlon in France, and it works great.

Have not seen anything similar in Switzerland.
