More on knots:

Even with the best knots, the leverage at the bow is tremendous without a bow line.

I currently have a single place Folboat Aleut that I really enjoy. It rides under the bed cover of my pickup and assembles in about 10 minutes.

A few years ago, I had a two-place Folboat Greenland II that I really liked except that it was heavier, took longer to assemble, and was too light for the windage with just me alone in it. I have never converted my wife to a kayaker.

Folboat has a new single place, a little larger than the Aleut that looks like a real winner.

Frames and washboards are now aluminum instead of plastic. I just upgraded mine and the boat is much more rigid with the new frames. For a 35# boat, it moves very nicely.

Folboat has been in business since 1933. I used to see their ads in Popular Mechanics magazine when I was a small boy. They have kept up with new materials as they develop and make a very nice boat.

Late entry

For what it is worth for those of us who come by this late.

I have an F150 Supercrew. It carries three hobie kayaks with a clamp on rack attached to the back of the bed and a roof mounted rack for the cab. They both have extendable beams that allow me to load the kayaks easily by myself, one end at a time. Links below to the supplier, I bought them here.
