Anyone fascinated by camping knows that transporting your boat is one of the most important things, when you are preparing your outdoor accessories.
Here are several tips how to manage your boat easily in order to make your trip more secure. You need to follow some major securing procedures, no matter what tie-downs you are using. Always set up the boat on the rack, but make sure you center well the fore and the aft.
Your kayak needs to be firmly fixed with at least 2 straps that hold its body on your vehicle bumpers. No matter what tie-downs you are using, occasionally check the boat, while you are driving.
The most important thing for the security on the road is to be sure that the boat is fastened tight to your rack. Before heading out, make a little test – grab the end of the boat and shake it a bit. If the boat is well settled, the entire car must shift.
Before driving, always check the both bumpers and place the boat on the center of your car, which prevents an eventual accident. When you are driving, keep a low speed and a proper distance from other vehicles.
