Thanks fella's Yea Stompy have loaded like that but your vehicle is a lot lower than my Patrol ute, I would be concerned with the amount of weight and stress you are putting on your rack. I posted an idea on Scrubby's blog with his simple but effective boat loader.
Cheers

I use a Rhino rear loader together with a battery drill.
With these units there is no lifting the boat into position for the winch to then drag it up.
You simply back the boat up to the car, hook up the ropes and operate the drill.
It lifts it from scratch all the way.
To take it off you just reverse the drill and the boat is put back down behind the car.
No lifting means less chance of back injury which can surely dampen one's holiday.
I understand that they are expecting to release a fully electric one early in the new year.
