I recall seeing something on the net showing a new product which made side loading of canoes & kayaks really easy by only having to lift them to say chest height, then the rack cantilevered to the top of the vehicle.

Tried a few searches, coming up empty.

Problem.....

Really high Delca...

Short assed wife....

Big kayak......

Any suggestions?

Hey LW,
A man with your talent couldn’t you fabricate something like the tilting Fridge slide that Geocacher has in the back of his rig? So that it slides off the back? That’s my 2 cents worth.

The only thing i can think of is a couple of rhino rack bars with a roller on the back bar . I have a similar problem . A short kayak and a big assed wife .

You guys are so cruel. I would never say anything like that about my wife. The bitch would kill me.

I may have to make something else until I find that URL again.

Yakima in the States have a nifty idea, I might give it a shot.

Hey Wolfie,
I know the pic with the catus was done really carefully, but can you imagine actually heading into one with heaps of momentum. Now that would hurt big time. Love the wolf pic too.

Here we go freestyle marine www.bmackay.com.au/.I've seen similar loaders for wheelchairs as well if you wanted to search around a bit.

Saw bloke once with a similar setup on a Hilux 4x4. It was rear loading a tinnie on to the roofrack

I wouldnt suggest to change the wife but maybe change the Kayak to an inflatable. Or better still convert the Delica into Nissan or Landcruiser or Landrover or Mitsu?????
