    Most single place kayaks are only about 40 lbs. or less so you should not have a problem. Tandem kayaks are 65 lbs, and are awkward for one person. H

    I have a wilderness system pamlico 120 kayak. I think it's about 56 lbs. It's not really a problem at all getting up and I also have the bow downs with yakima roof rack. If i get a chance i'll have to take a picture...

    New carrier

    Put new Thule carrier on and gave it a trial fit. Heavy, but definately doable. Need to find just the right lift I guess.

    I have a 10' Pelican, with the Sportrack J's and found that the front tiedown scratched the paint on the hood. Anyone else have this problem?

    I thought about adding a bullbar, but it doesn't look like they are high enough to make a difference. You only need the taglines for highway speeds, so I decided to just stay off of them, for now. Any other ideas to fix this problem would be appreciated, as I pretty well have that puppy on my roof for the entire fishing season.

    Although it is a very nice rig, I'm afraid it would not be very practical to haul around a trailer, as much as I carry my yak. Maybe for the planned, long hauls though...no the wife would probably go nuts on me, if I had that sitting in the yard.

    What about foam padding for the tie-down? Or a sock-type device of soft cloth?
