Foam Blocks This method is kind of like the duct tape approach to kayak transport. With this system the foam blocks are placed on the roof of the car and the kayak is strapped down sandwiching the foam between the roof and the kayak. The reason foam blocks are so popular is that they are a very economical transport system. However, care needs to be taken to make sure the kayak is secured properly to prevent any problems and or damage to your kayak and/or vehicle. foamblock Car with with foam block carrier system Trailers: This is fast becoming a popular alternative for individuals who are tired of lifting or for the family that needs an easy way to haul the fleet. Many trailers are well made, perfect for kayaks, and in some cases can be close to cost of an aftermarket rack system. We recommend Trailex Trailers.
While foam blocks will work, we strongly recommend putting a rack system on your car - this will make life easier, protect the roof of your car, and leave you more room for other accessories & gear. Most rack manufacturers make special rack adapters for 2 door cars with shorter roofs. Both Thule and Yakima make good system for cars. SUVs and Mini Vans The longer roof frame of an SUV or a Mini Van does give you some advantages over cars, but sometime the added height of an SUV can make getting your kayak on top a little harder. Most SUVs come with factory racks that work well to receive most kayak carriers and transport accessories. Factory racks systems do have weight limits, but most can handle 1 or 2 medium to light weight kayaks without a problem. A popular way to transport two kayaks with a factory system is to transport one in a J-type carrier and the other flat or face down on the bars. You can really maximize space by using two J-Carriers.
Pontoon boats are another option for a small fishing vessel. If you like to fish on generally calm waters and like to be in a seat which allows you rotation and maneuverability, then this can be an excellent choice. There is plenty of storage space and increased movement while fishing. These can be extremely stable and, while they are open and one is exposed to the elements, the elevation of the seat keeps you from coming in contact with the water. These also can be fitted with a motor so this kind of boat is a good option for those who do not desire to paddle. Pontoon boats can also allow for increased mobility and excellent storage as some models collapse easily. If you fly fish the ability to stand and sight fish makes makes this a good option. The Sea Eagle FoldCat Inflatable Boat is a favorite for its easy of assembly and its versatility.
Many recreational kayaks have tremendous initial stability but have a very abrupt secondary. When they reach their secondary limit youre literally dumped. Conversely there are kayaks that wobble like mad but are very forgiving when they come to the dump point. Most recreational fishing kayaks have a good compromise of both initial and secondary stability. Since you sit on or near the floor of a SIK they tend to seem more stable. In SOTs you sit on the kayak and since it has a double hull you also sit higher. This higher sitting position can initially make a SOT seem less stable. If you have a SOT and a SIK that are the same length and width the SIK will probably be more stable. Because of this SOT designers tend to make their kayaks wider. So no matter which style you choose there will be a model that you will feel comfortable in. Initial stability can seem more important to beginners and secondary stability more important to seasoned kayakers. It makes sense. The beginner hasnt developed a sense of balance yet. Its a lot like learning how to ride a bicycle. When you start out its new so you think about it more. After a short while it becomes second nature and you dont think about it at all.
