Are lighter than poly and there are a few choices in the 12-14' range you can explore. Not cheap new, though.

I haven't paddled the Elie, so cannot tell you anything of value.

I DIYed my cart easily and cheaply from some cart wheels and PVC pipe. Plenty of ideas on the Web for that, and it works for short and longer hauling. So loading onto the cart and off becomes the only issue if weight matters; it's different if you're loading on a car top, though.

The BEST advice is still to paddle it first before you buy it if it's at all possible. Otherwise the likelihood of disappointment is high.
