Here's a great way to haul up to (5) kayaks plus the paddles, life jackets & other gear neatly in the back of of pick-up. Outfitters in our area charge $40 per kayak per trip to drop you off upriver ($200 a day for a family of 5). With this set-up, they only charge us $25 to drop us off at the same spot & to drive my truck back to the same take-out spot downstream. That saves at least $175 each time we go!
Step 1: Plans
This is the only page left from the original drawings of this project. The pick-up in the intro picture & my laptop were stolen earlier in 2012 along with all of the autocad files I planned to share here.
