Outdoor sports can be an expensive form of recreation, especially watersports where you have the high cost of the canoe, along with all the necessary related equipment. Why pay more than you need to just to transport your boat to the water? SportRack has simple and uncomplicated, easy to load carriers that will get your craft to the water and back home again, on the roof of your vehicle, without stretching your wallet.
The basic building blocks for this carrier are the 4 durable 6” closed cell foam support blocks. These blocks are strong and solid enough to provide support for your canoe, but won’t damage the vehicle or canoe finish. The roof side has a non-skid surface to prevent movement when used on a bare roof, plus the blocks are also cut out for use on Thule, SportRack, round, and factory racks, and to attach to the canoe gunnels.
Once in position, the canoe is secured to the roof with sturdy polypropylene straps with chromate buckles. The straps are positioned over the canoe and then run through the tops of the door openings so they can be secured inside the vehicle. For stability, extra-long ropes, along with hooks, are provided to tie the bow and stern of the canoe to the front and rear of the vehicle.
The SportRack Standard 6” Canoe Carrier comes with instructions detailing how to mount the carrier and canoe on your vehicle. The limited lifetime warranty applies to the original purchaser of the product, and warrants the product against manufacturer’s defects in materials or workmanship.
