For plastic whitewater boats, there really is no point to J-cradles other than to make more money for Thule and Yakima. Totally unnecessary and, as noted above, make you look like a noob.

I can see them being useful if you had something like a handmade wood-strip seakayak or ultra-light composite boat, but for plastic whitewater boats, no. Get a pair of stackers.

IF you don't mind looking a bit redneck, you can make a kayak stacker out of 1/2" black pipe very easily.(big IF there...) a base plate, a 2' piece of pipe threaded on both ends, and a T for the top to hold the camstraps. put them together, spray with poly or paint so it doesn't rust, and attach to bars. They catch the cam strap very well, hold up, and cost about $12 for a pair.

For us cheeep bastirds... they work very well.

Discover Denver, stay there!

Run straps through the kayaks' grab handles whenever you can.
