I should be more specific
There are a couple of things I would like to avoid concerning the rack. One thing would be obscuring the brake lights. The other would be using the hitch. The brake lights for obvious reasons, the hitch for my shuttle vehichle. Which is a small motorcycle. If I could mount the boats somehow off the back, keep the roof for the flat stuff and strap my bike to the hitch we would be totally self contained. Every time I go to a festival, or just a busy day on the river I see people with some pretty ingenious ways to get their crew and gear to the water. I know your out there, so lets see 'em.
