boat rack for a Jeep Wrangler?

Post by Aaron Cod » Sun, 09 Aug 1998 04:00:00


hello

does anyone out there know of a boat rack (for a sculling boat) that might
somehow fit on top of a soft-top Jeep Wrangler (97 model) ?
Any fellow jeep-driving scullers out there figured this one out?

thanks

Aaron

Hey Aaron,
I have a Wrangler (hardtop) and an Empacher aswell, but I have never used
my car to transport it. It's been suggested that there be a custom rack
mounted from two points in front ( near the grill) and in back (by the gas
can holders) of the vehicle, and then a "luggage rack" on top. I've seen it
done, it's really a "Rube Goldberg approach". There has to be an easier
way. because it's okay for cross country, but it seems like a real pain in
the ass for local regattas.

Now that would be a sight!  A little car carrying a boat that's twice as long
as it is!  :)
