Works as advertised. Allows me to load my Ocean Kayak Prowler 13 T without any help on to my Jeep.

The Boatloader works as advertised. My beware that for the new large and wide yaks it may not work as well as one would think. Make sure that you place an old pice of carpet or a towel along the side of your vehicle just in case it slips and gets away from you while loading or unloading.

Top Question & Answer
Q: I have a yakima roof rack on my 2012 Honda Civic. Would this product work for side-loading my Pro Angler 12? Thanks!
A: As long as you have the Yakima round crossbars on your vehicle, this boat loader will work to assist the loading of your Pro Angler 12.

Q: What is the best option for loading two Hobie Outbacks on a car rack. At present I have 48" yakama crossbars and the boat loader for my Subaru Baja.
A: Typically you would use a J-style carrier for loading 2 kayaks to the top of the car, however the Hobie Outbacks are relatively heavy and are not recommended for this style rack. You will most likely need to get longer crossbars and use a flat loading option along the lines of the Yakima Sweet Rolls or the Yakima Even Keel. All this said, the longer crossbars will stick out fairly far on the top of your vehicle. This is one thing to consider when going this route.
