This roof rack is made from plywood and foam
to hold three kayaks:
After using the roof rack a few
times, I strengthened the plywood cross-pieces with fiberglass. If I were
to make another roof rack, I would make the base of each 'J' piece thinner to save weight, as there is not much
stress on it.
The bow line is attached to the car on webbing loops that were bolted to the car
using existing bolts at the edge of the hood. No more searching under the
vehicle for good tie-down places!
