From there you can get pretty creative, you could attach custom fitting guides to fit your kayak. The guides or bolsters could be made from wood or foam or whatever.

They would help in guiding it up, and to cradle it during transport keeping it snug. Even if you already have a permanant rack something like this should stay put on your rear winshield so you could guide the kayak up.

They typically worked well for me sliding a large canoe onto my car for many years and did not move around too much.

I hope I have been helpful

Jake,

You are a hell of a paint artist.

Thanks for the comment, I am currently working on this, however it is in the beginning stages.

You can see I haven't started on the right side of the creek yet or the background and scenery. MS Paint is pretty cool, you can customize colors.

LOL. Happy little trees.

Bob Ross was one of my idols growing up. I would sit and watch him paint from start to finish on T.V. as a kid.

I'm going to see if I can find some youtube Bob Ross video's.

Look up his mentor Bill Alexander as well. Then you'll learn to "fire in."
