The rack was probably a Rhino Rack - cost around $1800 fitted and do work well. The Rhino boat loader has no floor in it and
those I've seen sit about 6-8 inches above roof creating a lot of drag and lets all the showsenhousen drip all over the roof

They are available through most 4 WD joints, ARB agents amd marine deale I have just buit a rack using Rhino brackets,
frame from stainless and top/floor made from regenerated polyethylene which is similar in strength to teflon
but much cheaper ($90 an 8ft x 4ft sheet x 10mm) lighter than ply, or alluminium sheet and won't wear out. Boat slides easily on
this stuff and enables it to be more multi purpose when leave boat home. At a pinch I could sleep up there if the 'gators get that thick

cheers.
