The Hobie Cradle Set for the Adventure Island kayak keeps your boat riding smooth on your trailer or rack. The cradle is attached to the cross bars of your trailer and creates a custom fit so your boat stays secure and doesn't warp. Mounting hardware not included.
Wow I cannot say enough about this invention. I have a Hobie Pro Angler. When I first bought my PA I had the Yakima Hully Rollers and Saddles - the rollers were too weak and the saddles crushed quickly I almost lost my boat on the road. I then purchased the Hobie Cradle set - these are awesome, keeps my PA perfectly safe. Easy to load and unload and easy to install. Got a Hobie? you need the Cradle set.
Not worth the money! I purchased the AI single version. It does not do a very good job of holding the amas in a good position. For the money you're better off buying the wing type.
The Hobie Cradle set is a good upgrade for my Trailex aluminum trailer. Make sure you order bolts and hardware from Hobie to mount your purchase. Great addition.
These craddles appear to be of good quality, easy to install. No mounting hardware included with the cradels, but the Trailex trailer for AIs and TIs come with mounting hardware for these cradles.
