My buddies and I have the issue of stratching our cars when loading our kayaks up for a day of paddling. Because of this, we have decided that we are going to build a new type of boat carrier that will combat our problem. I want to hear from others about what attribute they would like to see in a boat rack. I have created a survey that gives options on the different attributes of such a product. The link can be found below.
What the heck are you and your buddies doing that is scratching the car? Yeah if you drop the boat on your car, which admittedly I have managed a couple of times. But that was not the rack’s fault, just my being inattentive. And that was loading a 16 plus foot sea kayak by myself, without help from buddies which normally help to reduce scratching.
