Description

An awesome accessory for hauling or storing small boats (canoes and kayaks).  The canoe / kayak rack is easy to add to a utility trailer, or to use for storing boats.  Or both.

The canoe / kayak rack design is easy to build, then easy to set up and use.  Make it to fold, stack, and set aside while it is not in use.  Use it to store boats – either on or off a trailer – then, to haul the boats to the water.

The plans have options for size depending on the size of your boats.  It works well for full canoes, or for small river kayaks.  You can make it for 2 boats with gear storage under, or make it for up to 6 boats.  Pad the arms before travel, and you’ve got a very secure carriage.  If you travel with several canoes or kayaks, this is a great rack!  Build it to make the trips, for storing between trips, and to boat access easier.

More About The Design Features

This nifty boat rack holds up to 6 canoes or kayaks (or any combination).  When not in use, the rack comes apart and stores basically flat for easy placement out of the way — like to rest against a wall.  Options in the plans include size changes to build it smaller, depending on the boat sizes you have.  Canoes?  White-water kayaks?  Sea kayaks?  The kayak rack is versatile.

Canoe or Kayak RackThe rack is normally used in 2 different ways:

  1. To stand alone, usually on the ground or small platform, to hold the boats storage.
  2. Bolted to the flat bed of a utility trailer to become a boat hauler.

And it’s easy enough to use the same rack for both purposes.

The image shows 2 canoes loaded on one side of the rack.  Plans are for the rack only, you supply the boats.  This is a simple design that is easy to build . . . . Read more about What is in the Plans . . .

Construction requires metal cutting, drilling, and welding.
