Kayak Rack finished!

Finally finished my kayak rack. First trip to the coast at OBX scheduled for October with my Ocean Kayak Big Game 2. I have the front part of the rack made to swivel around and to swivel down. Making it easy for me to load by myself.

Looks great Ted. I would be afraid though of getting tunnel vision on that front pole in your line of site...just kidding.

Nice rack. You prefer hull side down for loading ease? I just picked up a Jackson Cuda 12 and need to figure out the best way to transport. I do have a front receiver and round tubes over the cab. Your method is intriguing.... My camper is bumper pull, but I like to keep the bed open for "stuff".

I like to carry hull down just because it sits better and I don't want the seat dropping down or in case the center hatch (where I keep my lures) were to open.

Makes sense. I like that mine has a paddle groove, it fits perfect on the front bar when upside down on my double rails. Makes it feel very secure. I remove the seat during transport, but you are right about hatches possibly opening and dumping contents.
