I've looked online, but haven't found a good solution to transport our Pakboat with our old pickup truck, which has a canopy. The canopy is probably about 4" higher than the truck roof. Do any of you know of a good (inexpensive) solution? (We're hoping to replace the truck in a year or so.) Any solution needs to work with or without our camping trailer.

Thanks.

Normal roof rack rails. Pad them if you want. Throw the boat up there, strap it front and back and across each rail, and go. A Klepper rides rightside up, whereas the Puffin will probably go upside down like a canoe.

For tiedowns, swing by Home Depot or equivalent and get some of the straps that ratchet down (and then don't (do not) over-do it when tightening them around the boat).
