Now youve gone and wrecked your image, Roadrunner! You were looking way
too cool there for a while
It's really shallowminded for a person to be concerned about his or her image. And by the way, how rude of me not to to introduce my brother
Phil in the picture above. People say we look alike, but in all modesty I think they're just being kind ... to him.
Looks like your rack is fixed, how in Heavens name do you get your boat all the way up there!!!!!!!!!???????????
Usually just toss it up with whatever hand is not signing autographs. But in all seriousness, my brother
and I got our Dad to demonstrate how he sets up his Adventure (the AI is a little easier because you can get a better grip on the back aka bar than the cargo well):
Note, only the back half is lifted overhead and it's just pushed forward. If you have it on a cart, just wheel the bow onto the tailgate and you don't even have to bend down very far to lift, or so I hear.
If you have bars over the cab already, here's a nifty solution (if you have a hitch receiver).
Speaking of bed extenders, here you can see how it works -- we're transporting 2 AIs; one rides in the bed. Not nearly as nice as Norskboy's rig, but works for an occasional extra boat. You just have to watch your swing!
Thanks Stringy for posting my actual photograph. Must have been taken at a very fast shutter speed! Note that same silly "AI"grin that my brother also has.
BTW, anyone who believes all this is very astute -- my compliments! Paul, sorry for hijacking your thread. We'll be expecting to see you in your new AI very soon!
