Is anyone aware of a cradle set that will work for an Outback? Something like the cradles available for the PA. I want to be able to store the kayak on the trailer.
Thanks,

Herb

Hobie recommends storing up side down but you could use 2 lengths of 4" pvc longways. It will bend to the hull and evenly distribute the weight.

The Yakima Land Shark saddles should work. The come in pairs and you can set them apart or as close as you need to support the kayak. I know the outback has a bit of a keel but should not be too deep for the saddles. I carry two revolutions upright on them and they are several inches above the bars.

They are also the least expensive of the kayak saddles.

A Thrill Ride is being dragged around in your kayak for 40 minutes by an extremely large fish.
