my wife and i have kayaked for awhile, then kids came along, got older and now we just bought two kayaks for them. I am look for cheap to build ideas for transporting all four kayaks together. we use roof racks for the car (close fit with four) to put in and then my truck to take out. had loads of problems getting them in the truck and tied down. real pain after a long paddle. any ideas?

For car transport I have a wide rack all the way to my mirrors and I can easily strap 4 yaks or 2 canoes or even more if I have to. You need to find a way to extend your rack if you have a short one. The legal limit is to the edge of your mirrors.

On your truck, my buddy has a truck and we just pile all the boats in and tie the fronts to his front tiedown. Then we tie them down in the middle or back by just tying off to the his bottom tie downs in his truck. His truck has some tie off points built into the bed. Then we just hang a flag on there.
