Newbie here...
I don’t have a Compass (or any Hobie kayaks) yet but may be getting one, or three...
Do all Hobie sit on top kayaks have the same scupper/‘plug in cart’ hole specs? I.e. hole diameter and center to center of hole distance?
Reason for question is that these boats will be used in a busy rental fleet and must be stored/transported quickly a distance of 200 feet to the back bay (protected salt water) hard sand/shell beach to launch, then taken out quickly by one person.
My concern is ease of use & protecting the hull/mirage drive from typical rental fleet hard use/abuse..
I’ve observed people struggle trying to lift their Hobies up to get wheels under them, be they scupper mounted or ‘platform/strap’ wheel systems. I’m not keen on the idea of tipping the kayak in its side to place the scupper mounted type, but if y’all say it works that may be the way to go.
I have built several kayak/rowing shell/paddle board ‘cart’ systems for bicycle towing & enjoy the thinking/pondering processes.
Thoughts welcome & appreciated.

All cart scuppers are at the same dimension. Tipping on its side is the easiest way. Supper simple.
