I'm a female with not great upper body strength and am getting a sea kayak - 17', 62 lbs.
I have a factory J Rack on my Subaru Outback.
The Outback is the newer body style and is taller than its prececessors at 5 1/2 ' from ground to crossbars.
Need advice for simple way(s) to be able to load the kayak onto the J Rack by myself.
** I saw the old thread discussing the 2"x2" boards with the hooks. Not sure that's the best solution, so other ideas are welcome.
