How Not To Transport A Kayak

5 posts in this topic

Hi Folks,I just came across this Smart car... Having driven with kayaks on a very good rigid roofrack for years (on a Toyota), you can trust me when I say that this contraption freaked me out! Straps were loose, bungees on bow and stern just hooked into the plastic bumper... I really hope they are not going far!

Welcome to North America, the land where Rube Goldberg is considered a hero! Or McGyver.

"Common sense" is an oxymoron.

I attended the funeral for "common sense" in 1955. Life hasn't been the same since.

"Common sense" is an oxymoron.

I have a T-shirt emblazon with the phrase:

"The problem with common sense is that it's not all that common"

People often stop me and question it,...... which just kind'a proves the point doesn't it :D

I have a 5.3m tripping kayak that I would never carry on a smart car - no matter how sturdy the carrier is. The overhang alone makes this a dangerous proposition.
