I like what I see but there is a great after market rack that retails for less than $140.
Bobby, in case you haven't been paying attention, all the pictures in this thread already display versions of same aftermarket product that you are advertising here. I'm not sure why someone would want to pay $130 from your store when they can get one at Harbor Freight with the same 500 lb. capacity for less than $40.
In my opinion, many of the Hobie dealers or their employees are valued contributors to the forums without resorting to hawking their products and services. I would suggest these forums are not intended as a solicitation platform by vendors. If they were, no doubt, Hobie would be selling advertising space.
On the other hand, your foam block suggestion is a great possible alternative. Likewise, your previous heads up that some dealers offer free tune-ups, is great information and excellent PR for those dealers who do this. Any interested reader would probably waste no time calling his/her local dealership to see if they offer this excellent service.
