One person can do it, two makes it easy. Wheels are a good idea if you can't pull right up to the water, especially alone.

For those looking for a kayak.... sign up on Old Town Canoe for their newsletter. Every spring they have a factory "Blem" sale with heavy discounts. These are all safe/water-worthy crafts but have blemishes. My wife and I got two kayaks with nice seats, foot bars, paddles and holders all for under $400. They both had some bubbling in the mold but both perform very well.

They have the sale, typically in April, for 3 days. The down-side is you have to go or find someone close to send as your proxy. I'll nab some pics of ours and post 'em up.

I just bought a Tarpon 120. I intend to fly fish from it

To get it home I tied it down in the bed, buy I'm eyeing up a TracRac, as eventually my wife will have a kayak too. Plus the rack will be useful for ladders etc.

I can't find a definite answer on how to tie the kayak down on the rack... hull up or down?

The bottom of the kayak is fairly flat through the middle of the hull. In the garage I've stored it on its side, but can I safely tie it to the rack hull down? And is there an ideal distance between straps that you guys know of?

I love how stable this kayak is. It's my first one, and I'm not disappointed
