    Q:

    This may seem a dull question. Does the boat loader help in taking the yak off off the car?

      A:

      Yes. My wife can't lift one end of our canoe because of back problems. The Boat Loader allows me to put the canoe on and take it off the car roof by myself by handling one end at a time.

      A:

      Yes, the boat loader also helps with unloading. Just reverse the process. It keeps the weight of the kayak down and under control. It helps to have someone to keep the first end of kayak that touches the ground from sliding away while you lift the other end of the extended pole.

      A:

      Yes, it does help with off-loading your boat from the roof rack. However, since the boat is already up on my roof, I find it easier to just put the boat directly on my shoulder to carry it to the put in rather than bringing it all the way down to the ground. I mainly use the boat-loader when I am putting the boat up on the roof rack. It is a great tool for solo loading!

      A:

      Yes, Rick, it does help. It's basically the loading, in reverse. You're not handling all the weight of the boat at once; the BoatLoader is supporting part of it.

Comments about Yakima BoatLoader:

I've been getting older(63) and my 17 ft. 70 pound kayak seems to gaining weight. I've been working out at the gym but I could use some help getting the kayak on my SUV by myself. The boat loader helps me do just that. I angle one end of my kayak on the extended rack pole and lift the other end up and onto the main rack. It beats dead lifting the kayak. The extender was easy to install (with a little WD-40) and the rubber "sand dollar" was a nice soft end to cushion any head to pole collisions.
