The Yakima Show Boat is a load assist roof rack system for kayaks and canoes. The Show Boat slides out to clear the rear of your vehicle so you can position the front of your boat onto the roller and simply roll the canoe or kayak into position on the kayak rack or canoe rack. The Yakima Show Boat roller system then recesses back into its stored position for transport.
The Yakima Show Boat has universal mounting hardware enabling the roller system to be installed directly to most factory rack crossbars in addition to Yakima racks, Rhino racks, Inno racks, and Thule racks.
A pair of Yakima 66" round bars are included for use with the Yakima Showboat to serve as the extension bars. The 66" bars create 24" of extension. 78" round bars may be required for clearing the rear of some vehicles.
The Yakima Show Boat works equally well with both kayak racks and canoe racks, whether transporting a boat flat, in a J-cradle kayak rack or on its side with a kayak stacker rack.
This load assist boat rack can be mounted on top of the roof rack crossbars when used with kayak racks, and mounted below the crossbars when used with lower profile canoe racks.
Premium padded roller for easy sliding and protection. Roller slides from left to right to allow loading of multiple boats to multiple racks.
All stainless steel and brass hardware for superior corrosion resistance.
Built in locking system secures the Show Boat to your roof rack.
