Question for you Thule Hullavator owners – I can get the thing to work perfectly with a kayak whose deck is relatively even in height, BUT… I just acquired a new LV boat with a very low rear deck. As a result of the design, the straps that secure the deck to the front Hullavator cradle are perfect (just in front of cockpit coaming) – but then in the rear cradle, placed roughly by the bulkhead behind the seat, the deck sits so low that the strap meant to hold it in place doesn’t even touch the boat. It just arches over the cradle when taut.
Is there some secret lashing technique to secure the rear cradle? The only hack I found through google is to add a foam block between the low rear deck and the straps of the rear cradle, but… that seems janky. I wonder if it’s just a matter of strap-jitsu?
