Transporting Two Kayaks - no truck, no trailor, options?
I wish I had all my pics, but I've hauled two kayaks down to Florida and also up to Lake Erie to fish my hometown waters once or twice.
I put the old rectangular Thule bars and roof racks on my forester. I've have hauled a combination of different yaks but the heaviest being probably a Cuda 14 and Revo13. Neither of those are particularly huge but the Cuda is a good size kayak. Especially once you start storing rods inside the hull. One in a J style rack and the other cradled on its belly. Depending on the hull shape and if I'm loading solo, I'll lay it deck down or belly down, whichever works best. For super long trips I doubled the tie down straps, but that's about it. The bars on the forester are pretty far apart so I never messed with a bow strap, might be worth checking out though just to take some stress of the cross bars.
