Kayak on a soft-top Sami?

Hi Guys,

Looking for a cost effective way to mount a kayak on a soft top. I don't want to get a Safari rack or anything, just looking for some ideas. When the top is off, it's not a problem to sit a 40 pound boat on the windshield header and roll bar. I drive like that with no problem. I just have no idea how to keep one up there when the top is on.

Rob

This might work. Get it off the top and pad the windshield frame?

I used foam blocks to support the boat and then just use straps to secure it down front, rear and to the sides.

Thanks guys! For now I have padded the windshield frame as suggested with pipe insulation and strapped the sucker down all over the place. Just need to find a sulution for when the top is on too. Looking at Jeep forums too.

These foam blocks are the bomb, they will work with and without the soft top on. a little creative cutting and shaping of the foam with sandpaper will allow the block to stay put on the windshield frame and rear soft top bow. I carried my Perception overflow whitewater kayak everywhere. http://oakorchardcanoe.com/detail.php?product=2320

Depending on how long a boat we are talking about, I would just stuff it in the back upright and strap from the cargo hooks up and around the coaming. I do this when I'm too lazy to toss my Swifty (9.5 feet) up on top of the wifes Blazer.

Thanks Guys!

I look into the blocks.

My boat is 13 feet long. Thats more than I want to try and stuff. Just too long...
