Description

Description

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

The canoe / kayak rack is designed to be set up and used, or folded, stacked, and set aside.  Use it to store boats — either on or off a trailer — then to haul the boats to the water.  If you travel with several canoes or kayaks, this is a great rack!  Build it to make the trips, storing, and 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.
