Marina dock carts are incredibly strong and can help transport large and heavy items to and from the boat. I have carried batteries, chains, and anchors with ease by utilizing these devices. The trick is to properly balance the weight over the axle, this way there is almost no force needed to lift the handle.
When Morty and the laundry are forward of the wheels, the cart will actually try to tip up. This makes the long walk much easier since you will actually be pushing down on the handle rather than pulling up.
Aside from the wonderful physical properties of a dock cart, Morty makes the whole trip adorable as he enjoys his elevated vantage point!
