I recently loaded my TI into the bed of my pickup, ended up with a slight overhang.

There was absolutely no denting. What you can barely see in the photo is a "bed slide" that supports the boat evenly from five foot back to thirteen foot back. Worked really well.

It's Hi-vis yellow but not "My whole boat is a safety flag" red :)

I got a sailmaker to cut it out of a cheap hi-viz worker vest (which only cost me $4.99 at the local Aldi store)

Rudder condom ? looks like you had a blowout. Never thought of duct taping them before but :idea:

LMAO! I see your bed x-tender, but it does look like 6+ feet of overhang... I hope nothing bad happens on extended trips. I have a more ghetto setup for my AI :D A darby X-tend-a-bed extender, a piece of 4'X8' omb, and leftover carpet... I have maybe 3' of overhang from my '04 dodge quad 1500... My red shop rag tucked under the rudder bungee tops the masterpiece off! I've traveled 2+ hours one way on California Interstates 25+ times with no problems.

Passwind, that is not duct tape. The rudder cover has been made from a Hi-vis safety vest, so the "duct-tape" is actually retro-reflective material for night visibility.
