Most of us would think the best way to transport a canoe or a kayak to the beach or to the river is to simply load it on to a standard roof rack on the car.
But, did you know there is actually a difference between a standard roof rack and a watercraft roof rack or watercraft carrier?
Roof Racks On The Run have been installing roof racks and providing expert advice and guidance to watersport lovers for over 26 years in the Gold Coast and Tweed areas.
Watercraft come in all different widths and lengths so it is important that you choose the right roof rack system for your watercraft and for your vehicle.
Standard roof racks tend to be flat and square providing little assistance when trying to load the watercraft onto the car and little cushioning to prevent damage to the watercraft.
Watercraft carriers are durable and purpose built, often with accessories to enable more than one craft to be loaded with padded bars in either a vertical or stacker position, reducing the risk of damage to the craft.
Watercraft carriers can accommodate a number of different types of watercraft with tilting pad technology, meaning the same system can securely stow your kayak one day and your canoe the next!
Ensuring your kayak or canoe is safely and securely loaded is your responsibility. Should your watercraft not be properly secured and cause damages or an accident or even worse, a death, you will be held liable!
Play it safe and ensure you have the correct carrying system for your watercraft. Call us at Roof Racks On The Run today.
We carry a large range of kayak and canoe carriers so you can transport your watercraft safely and more securely than on standard roof racks.
