Question about Boating
We spent close to $1,000 for a Yakima 2 kayak setup.
Parts included "landing pads", "control towers"(lockable), rails, "Hullyrollers" (in the rear) , crossbars.
That is a solid setup for carrying 2 ocean kayaks (18 feet each) on a Grand Caravan.
The Hullyrollers make loading/unloading real quick and easy. Just remember to lubricate the inside of the rollers at least once a year.
Once the kayaks are strapped to the racks you still need loosely tied front and rear tie lines. The tie lines do not hold the kayak to the rack. Their purpose is to keep things in place if you have a catastrophic failure (rear ended, etc.). More than one person has seen their kayaks and rack flying away in the rear view mirror while cruising down the highway. Tie lines prevent that.
One last tip: NEVER leave strap ends or tie down line dangling from the rack. If they get caught under a tire you will hear a loud crack as your kayaks bust into pieces.

Most of the rack systems available these days can be fitted
to almost any car, van or truck. However, it is still recommended to get racks
from an experienced store or dealer. You may want to try this link: http://www.orsracksdirect.com/kayak-canoe-racks.html
