Nice idea...not really practical.
I really wanted this to work. It would have been great, but it can't support my 90lb Hobie Outback Kayak. The outrigger is aluminum, great for weight, but it's just not stiff enough for heavier kayaks. I honestly feel that if the kayak is light enough to be trusted to utilize this outrigger, it's probably light enough to just heave up by itself. I'm sorry to say I had to return this.
