Dock carts should be compact and non-corrosive because of the small areas they are used in, and because of the severe affect of salty water and air on metals and wood. These two-wheeled, flat-bed carts can certainly be used as garden utility carts because they resist the rusting effects of moisture. They are specifically designed, however, for hauling all the accouterments of boating.

One of the small garden carts is great for the marina; it carries 200 pounds of gear and has an 11-gauge, steel-framed dump front which has been electrostatically coated to prevent corrosion. Along with heavy duty wheels that have steel spokes and semi-pneumatic tires, this cart has a very strong 3/4-inch steel axle. The bed dimensions are over 30 inches long and over 19 inches wide.

With specialized dock carts, every piece of the cart is geared toward resisting corrosion. The carts have various kinds of wheels, all designed for long-lasting use in an ocean atmosphere. A molded, one-piece polywheel is common because it requires no maintenance; it will not rust or rot and has sealed bearings.

One of the most convenient dock carts is a fold-up model that can haul up to 330 pounds. This rust-proof instrument folds for storage in a small space, and is made of strong aluminum. Weighing only 33 pounds, this tough, lightweight cart has inside dimensions of 38 inches long, almost 23 inches wide, and 11.5 inches deep.

A picture is worth a 1000 words and in this case that's true, a picture of the dock cart would be great to help us visualize what you're talking about.
