There are many difficulties in life, but there are many easy things we take for granted.
Yakima has contributed to the easy things in life with their EvenKeel car rack. The Yakima Even Keel is one of company's newer car-top racks and is designed for transport of a kayak or canoe.
The crux of the EvenKeel surrounds the 4 universally-fitting saddle attachments that mount directly to your vehicle's roof rack. Your boat's hull rests on top of the 4 saddles and straps to the roof rack to the recovery hitches under the front and rear bumpers. The saddles are flexible enough to adjust and conform to your boat's specific hull design.
The Yakima EvenKeel's simple design is outdone by its ease of use. It connects to your roof rack effortlessly and the straps strongly secure your boat. The only negative to the EvenKeel is that your boat is mounted on its hull opposed to being side mounted. This takes up added space on your roof and may limit carrying additional boats or bikes.
One of the other major advantages of the Yakima Evenkeel is the price. It lists at $99. It also comes with Yakima's limited lifetime warranty.
