Re: UP for Canoes Too

Posted by terry on May 2, 2005

Loading a wooden kayak upside down would, I think, risk a cracked deck as you're dealing with thinner wood and only one layer of glass (if that). I use stackers, but load the boats on their bottoms, tilted to the side a bit to allow them to rest on the flat part of the bottom.

I also put a small carabiner on the grab loop of the cockpit cover to keep it attached if it works loose.

The stackers are important to keep the boats stable, otherwise, they have a tendency to suddenly shift from side to side. This can be quite unnerving when you're driving.

good luck!
