Thule 835PRO Hull-a-port Pro Reviews
Joseph Dickerson rated this item 3 out of 5 on 7/4/2012:
We have several kayaks, smaller boats like my wife's Dancer or our Folbot Yukons work fine. However, with our larger boats, Old Towne Loon 160 and Perception Keowe II the lower section of the Hull-a-Port is too short and lacks adequate curve to support the boat securely. I'd really give these a 2 1/2 but it wasn't possible. YMMV
Keith rated this item 5 out of 5 on 5/23/2010:
Top notch quality and ease of installation - Thank you Thule and Rack Attack!! The J-racks are far more practical than my previous kayak saddle system.
Dr George rated this item 5 out of 5 on 10/10/2008:
My only other comment about the J-rack itself is that its picture online does not do it justice. It is far better in terms of quality than it looks and than I ever expected. Right on Rack Attack!

Will I need any other equipment besides the 835Pro Hull-a-port Pro for my car? I have a factory installed crossbar. I need to carry 2 ocean kayaks on top of my car. Thanks.
No, you will not need anything else as long as you already have crossbars. The Thule Hullaport Pros comes with all the hardware and straps needed for transporting the Kayaks.
Thanks, Rack Attack Boston

I just bought a Citadel that has the factory crossbars (they are built into the roof racks and pull out to attach as crossbars). I had trouble using the fit guide so I want to be sure the 835PRO Hull-a-Port PRO will work with these bars- I have two kevlar kayaks and will need two sets to mount both on my Durango.
Yes the 835PRO will attach to your factory bars. If you have any other questions, feel free to call our Boston location at 508 879 1444. Thanks!

The fit guide on the Thule website wasn't clear. Will the hull-a-port pro fit on my factory crossbars?
If they are Toyota Factory Crossbars then you will have no problem fitting the 835PRO on there.
Thule is pleased and very excited to recognize Rack Attack as a Thule 5-Star Dealer because we are "going beyond the borders..." and providing consumers the ultimate point of reference for locating product, service, and support.
