    I guess a lot of it is having the confidence to throw the thing about. But how do you guys get the kayak onto the car if your on your own ??

    Too old for power lifting :-\ i put a piece of carpet round the roof side bar( to protect bar/kayak ) lift the the bow on to it also have rope in hand attached to stern to stop kayak slipping back then go to back of yak lift up slide it onto roof, takes a couple of minutes saves on pain killers :)

    Lift mine on to my shoulder then up onto my j bars as long as you get the balance point right it's quite easy

    I lift as Matty explained but that came after a year or more of trying. It was all about getting hold in the rightr places and having confidence to do it.

    The way I did it at first was to put one end against a wall or curb and walk it upright then let it fall back onto your shoulder, anyone who has done scaffolding will be familiar with that technique.

    The reason I ask is I was sent a message on Facebook asking me the best way and I got to wondering if anyone had any other techniques such as Erbanfox describes.
