Granted their Phase 3 seating system is very comfortable & adjustable. The Perception not so much but I can easily get it up & in the truck. Plus porting it not as difficult for longer hikes down to the water. No way was I buying a little dolly thing to carry it down to the river lol.
The prices on those kayaks are ridiculously expensive. I dont see how much different they are from the older ones either! I have thought about making one of those little dolly things because its often a pretty decent hike to the water from the parking lots but for right now, i throw the yak over my head and hope no one gets in my way
As for the rack, I would get a single yakima or thule cross bar and a pair of mounts and mount it above the front doors. That will give you the support and you can utilize your rack that is in the pic. I have seen that done quite a bit.
That yak is beautiful!!! I would be too afraid to take it on the river and run across some rocks.
