The Yakima BoatLoader is a kayak and canoe load-assist product that is simple yet ingenious. The BoatLoader's extendable arm slides out from inside your Yakima RoundBar cross bar to help you load kayaks and canoes solo. Simply pull out the sand dollar end of the BoatLoader and lift one end of your boat on to the extended bar. Lift the other end of your boat on to your roof rack, position the boat as needed, and slide the BoatLoader back into your cross bar. Since you only have to lift one end of the boat at a time, loading and unloading becomes much simpler for one person.
