A number of people have asked me where I got my kayak racks from. I custom made them myself using the design shown below. Note the following:
- The front and back racks have different profiles to accommodate the different hull shape in those positions
- The EPIC V12, Fenn Elite, Fenn Elite SL, SharpSki will fit in the racks snugly
- My racks attach using 8mm hex bolts and unistrut nuts which are self locking in the heavy duty Rhino Rack bars. There is a hole through the flat bar to allow the hex bolt and the allen key to be inserted
- I used a bar bender to get accurate bends and the design makes allowance for 10mm thick foam padding.
