    I'm finally down to purchasing a kayak and need to figure out how to strap it to my vehicle. I'm a student so I'm looking for inexpensive ways to find a rack.

    Anyone have any suggestions?


    Thanks in advance

    Can get inflatable roof racks - not too expensive.

    But to be fair - a kayak is a heavy object if it goes flying off your car at 70MPH on a motorway!!

    You will also find that if you are paddling with mates - there are times you may have to put 4 boats on a roof - you dont want anything too cheap. its far too dangerous!

    You might be able to find one through Craigslist. I have a Yakima rack that works really well, but may be out of your desired price range. Unfortunately, I don't have any kayaks anymore.... some day.
