That would work, I much prefer a trailer for easy on off loading of the Pro Anglers. But if you can't tow that is definitely an option. I'm interested in if he painted the hull or it's a wrap, I can't see paint holding up but the view of the underside does look as if it's painted.

The Rhino Nautic Loader is a well thought out loader....not cheap with a MSRP $1350 + freight.....for some PA-14 owners that can't use a trailer and has a good/sturdy roof rack, it's a nice solution.

The boat in the video has a "carbon-fiber-look" wrap applied to the hull.....slick touch!

Its a wrap guys, Scott isnt known to do things in half measures. Any thing he does is the ducks guts, quite a few guys down under are wraping their Hobie's top and bottom. If done correctly which means the preparation is important the wrap sticks like the proverbial s..t to a blanket LoL

Nice, but a bit cumbersome and "fiddly". You'd have to disassemble it while you were boating, and then reassemble it again to load afterwards. That's four separate assemble/disassemble sessions per trip.


I also watched an associated vid for the Rhino Rack T loader. It's biggest drawback: with the loader in place how do you open the tail gate?
