    I have a Subaru Forester and a 83 lb. Old Town Discovery canoe. Occasionally I want to go canoe by myself, or with just my 8 yr. old daughter. There's pretty much no way I could load the canoe alone. The Boatloader makes it really easy. It is holding up well now in it's 3rd year of use. It stays out...read more

    I found these indispensable when loading my canoes and guideboats singlehandedly. I liked mine so much, that I made a special effort to salvage mine after my truck was totaled. A word of caution, in my now old pair, the sleeve can loosen and the entire rod escape from the tube during loading.

    I've used this thing for years. If your boat were light enough I'll venture to say that you could load it with one arm tied behind your back with this device.
    A little advice. Try to park on nearly level ground. Also, unlike Yakima's picture, install it on the driver's side, so it's t...read more

    I bought one of these a few months back to help load my new fishing kayak I bought for my camping trips and local fishing. I installed it in no time on the poles I use on my Suburban. I have nothing but good things to say about how easy this is to use. The kayak weighs nearly a hundred pounds and I'...read more

    I got the Boat Loader for loading our 2 man Kayak on a Sportsmobile van. We have full length tracks, with 2 sets of landing pads, control towers, 58" bars installed on the pop-top. Chose this for it's simplicity & cost.
