If you have a Hobie Pro Angler (PA) and put in on top of your SUV, let me know what works for you. I have an FJ Cruiser with a Baja Rack. It's a pretty serious roof rack and it is rated for 300lbs. I have been loading my Pompano 120 (2008 Tarpon) on my rack with Yakima Hully Rollers in the back and Mako saddles in the front. Even with my 60lb, 12 ft Pompano I feel that I need a roller or some other load assist device that hangs further off the back of the rack.
The idea would be to lift the front of the PA 14 up on the assist roller, then lift and push the back of the PA to get it loaded. I have seen a video of people loading their PA on the roof rack with just a rug, but that seems a little sketchy. My Pompano has slipped off to the side a couple of times while loading and unloading.
Yakima has the Showboat 66 load assist roller, but its only rated for 80lb kayaks. The 140lb PA 14 sounds like too much for it. There is also the Rhino Rack T-Loader, but then I have to have some huge bracket on the back of my FJ.
Any advice from a PA owner is appreciated. I may get a trailer as well, but I would like to be able to keep launching off Dania and Hollywood beaches and not have to go to a boat ramp, then navigate the intercoastal > inlet > ocean.
