Let ME be perfectly clear.
The only thing Zep over does is purchase mass quantities of wine while visiting California, on second thought, what's wrong with that??lol
Objects flying off roof racks are a big no-no.
CC, maybe if you're lucky you could find an airstream in a ditch somewhere that some stoner left behind.....

Oh, I've been looking for that very thing for a while. Finally had to break down and buy one though. When you find one on the side of the road it usually requires a bit of work.

We are in crisis mode, here. Down to the last 2 bottles of that amazing Zin and only three cases of 2Buck. It will take at least 4 more months to finish the house, so we will run out of cheap wine before we can get to CA. I guess we'll have to start sampling some of the other 300 bottles in the cellar...

Zep

PS--Thank Linda Lu for the Zin. Again.

very nice. We tried to do the same paddle a couple years ago but couldn't seem to connect to a suitable kayak company. I looked at your stats--you got up to 8.1 mph at one point--you must have been surfing.

Roger
could not connect with a suitable kayak company???
There are 3 to choose from these days. One in Poipu and 2, right across the street in Hanalei. All use tandems, ocean kayak Cabo's. Also a friend of a friend . Dylan Thomas does surf ski trips down the Napali, non stop full tilt surfing , less than 2 hours.
after some research we chose NaPali Kayak on the north shore. We were staying there so it made total sense. Last year we were in Poipu and I checked out "Outfitters Kauai". If stayin on the south side I would have used them.
REI uses the company we went with, that says something.
Zep, on the next area of my gps track you can find the second segment of our paddle, we got up over 10 mph when the squall rolled thru.
maybe when I sell the moho I can afford to pay this site for the privilege of posting images, lol
back to training 67 days on the water so far.

Crisis mode?? out of good zin?

To me, crisis mode is being in my kayak 2 miles offshore knowing that when I left shore 1/2 hour earlier I had 2 cups of coffee AND a bran muffin.

Well the solution for the two cups of coffee is very simple. For the bran muffin, not so elegant. How fast can you cover the two miles back to shore?

So does a kayak or two sticking 3 or 4 feet off of the back interfere with the Airstream when turning or backing? Or would it be a better plan to get a single bar on the cab of the pickup and move the boats forward some?

Thanks. Casey
I place the boats over the cab and then use another rack over the bed, which has worked out really well. Use the back rack to carry firewood, other stuff.

Where did you get the Roof Rack for the Boats? I have a 2012 Platinum and cant seem to find one like that for it. Thanks Brad for any information. Like the setup!

Check where they sell Thule, like REI or other places. Perhaps there are other options but this works flawlessly for me. The Hullavator allows you to lower the rack to chest height so you can load the boats - from the side, which for me with my setup is a huge benefit. I don't have a bad back, and I am trying to keep it that way. Not cheap, but it works REALLY well, especially when you are loading boats on big machines like an F250.

FWIW, the rear rack is a set of TracRac racks with a Yakima tray/cage mounted on top for firewood, other outside stuff. This part is more an accumulation of stuff I had versus a well laid out plan, but it works great!
