Yakima ShowBoat Reviews
Rack Attack Coquitlam rated this item 4 out of 5 on 10/3/2008:
This is by far one of the best roller options for kayaks and the only roller option for canoes. 4 out 5 due to the Showboat's install time.
Yakima ShowBoat Questions
asked on 7/23/2012:
Can the Yakima Showboat be configured to use with 2 kayaks? Videos and docs only show them being used with one.
The Showboat actually slides from left to right as well as front to back. So, you'll be able to slide it from side to side allowing you to load two kayaks side by side.
