the best way to load a canoe onto your roof racks
Also, once you have your canoe on top of your car, it\'s a priority to install it safely on your roof stand.
Improperly protected, your canoe can suffer structural damage and, in the worst case, can cause serious safety hazards while you are driving.
The foam block roof rack system provides protection for both issues at an affordable price.
The system is easy to set up and safe to make sure you return to the river quickly.
Operation difficulty: 4 C-
There are foam blocks in shape on gunwales, so there are two on each side of the canoe.
Place foam blocks to make them equal distance to the center of the canoe.
The space foam block is far enough apart on each gunwale, so that when the canoe is later placed on the roof, the foam block stays on the edge before and after the roof.
Gently scroll the canoe to make the bottom up.
Catch the bow of the canoe and let the partner catch the stern.
Lift the canoe together with an action until it is overhead.
Put the canoe on the roof.
Slide foam blocks, if necessary, to keep them on the edge of the roof.
Open your door.
Throw three nylon loads-
The strap supporting the canoe from the sideto-side.
Place as far forward and backward as possible two outer straps and place the third one in the middle of the roof.
Connect the end of the load-
There are belts in your car.
Pass the opening end through the fastener and pull until the strap is tight.
Cross a rope from the tail of the canoe.
If there are no holes or holes, tie the rope to the stern seat.
Tie the other end of the rope to the rear bumper of your car.
Repeat the process at the bow of the canoe.
Fasten these knots so that the wires do not relax.
