Forget the roof rack, kayak fits inside.

I'm glad there is a solution for the 86 now! :w00t: Thx for posting.

Any ideas where to buy the Yakima rack for delivery to europe? Can't find european sites that list the parts online.

I love my roof rack.

So has anyone tried a long kayak? I've seen pics of using the front and rear tow hooks as tie downs but I have two kayaks..

PNA 07-09-2014 04:56 PM

@dietz is that a Jackson rockstar kayak? If so what size?

I'd like to get into kayaking and figure my first kayak should fit in my car. But I'm not sure if it makes sense to get a short whitewater kayak for to learn on.

We have slow moving water here and a white water kayak is terrible for that. I borrowed a dagger to go with some friends it sucked for paddling around.

Mossyjaw 07-10-2014 06:08 PM

Well all daggers aren't the same it was the short snub nose one. If you stop paddling it turns instantly so you have to paddle all the time, no enjoying the scenery but probably awesome on rapids because how maneuverable it was.

I just came to read the comments :popcorn:

Any updates on the roof rack? Pros and cons? Did it screw up the roof or weather stripping or window glass?

Yes, it is a Jackson Rockstar, large. First gen, which is a bit longer than the current models. It is a bit of a dance to get in, and of course paddling buddies will hate you because you can't shuttle, but for park and play it works. I also stuck my liquid logic jefe in the back and let it stick out a few feet with the trunk tied down.

Off topic now, for a first kayak I would not get the rockstar. Too hard to roll. If you definitely want to get into playboating, I'd start you out on the allstar. If you only want river running and some play, take a look at the FUN (which will not fit inside the car...).
