This is our top of the line, rail-mounted kayak boat rack. Made of marine grade stainless steel, this boat rack is designed for outdoor use and meant to stand up to serious outdoor exposure. It mounts easily to your boat's rails and adjuts with a quick release knob tightening system, folding smartly flat against your rails when not in use to maximize boat space.
Made of Stainless Steel. To be more precise, this rack is constructed from 1” diameter, 304 marine grade mirror polished stainless steel tubing. This is heavy duty stuff that is built to withstand outdoor exposure for many years. We know your boat get hits with occasional squalls, and this rack is built to withstand that and more while storing your kayak (or canoe or paddleboards) safely and securely.
How is it secured to my boat? Each rack arm is outfitted with heavy duty stainless steel mounting brackets with stainless steel hardware. These mounting brackets are designed to fit straight and tapered, vertical or diagonal boat rails from 7/8” (22 mm) to 1-1/2” (38 mm) diameter (great for stanchions or bow and stern pulpits, too). Initially secures to your rails with bolts. You can choose to mount on the inside of your boat's rails, or on the outside over the water. Use with yachts, sailboats, center console boats, pontoon boats. This rack will NOT fit square stanchions (tubes).
How does it adjust? Kayaks come in different shapes and sizes, so this rack is designed to adjust with quick release knobs (no tools). For the widest kayaks, set the rack fully perpindicular to your boat's rails to get the most storage width. To accommodate a thinner boat, adjust the rack arms away from each other outward on an angle, so the overall storage space is smaller and tighter to hold your kayak closely. Also, you don't have to remove this rack when you're not using it because it's smartly designed to fold flat against your rails out of the way.
How many kayaks can it hold? This set of 2 rack arms will hold 1 standard kayak. Available in 2 widths:
Rack Arms: Made of stainless steel. Each arm's tip has a tie down point to use to secure your kayak (tie downs not included). UV resistant foam padding covers the arms to protect your kayak when cruising, racking and unracking.
