I just changed vehicles and switched to a Hullavator from J Carriers. I am very pleased with it because my kayak is heavy. However, I am now getting significant depressions in the hull. The bottom of the hull must sit on two bumps which do not really fit the profile of the hull. They create alot of pressure.
No harm so far…the depressions come out with towels and boiling water on top of them. But there has to be a better solution.
I never had this issue with J-carriers because the boat was tilted on its side, and the weight was distributed such that there was alot less pressure on the polyethylene.
I was thinking of making some “bunk boards” out of piece of wood and gluing some yoga-mat foam on each side. The bunk boards would lie flat in-between the Hullavator and the kayak hull., I still have to figure out a safety leash…
Anyone else have this issue and come up with an easier solution?
