Going it alone? If you need help getting your boat on your
car rack, the BoatLoader can lend an arm. Prop one end of
your boat up on the extension and then lift the other end
onto the rack. The Yakima BoatLoader retracts into the
Yakima round cross bar when not in use.
Extends 28" from end of crossbar to support even the
largest canoes and kayaks.
Helpful in getting heavy loads onto taller roof
Solid steel bar has an aluminum over-sleeve for
corrosion resistance and boat finish
I've been getting older(63) and my 17 ft. 70 pound kayak seems to gaining weight. I've been working out at the gym but I could use some help getting the kayak on my SUV by myself. The boat loader helps me do just that. I angle one end of my kayak on the extended rack pole and lift the other end up and onto the main rack. It beats dead lifting the kayak. The extender was easy to install (with a little WD-40) and the rubber "sand dollar" was a nice soft end to cushion any head to pole collisions.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
