As one who frequently travels various distances, to meet my female paddling friends, the Thule Hullavator has given me the opportunity to continue to enjoy kayaking without having to lift my OT Castine (12'9") or Chatham 16 to the top of my Ford Explorer. I am 5'2" and still need a very short folding stool to reach the initial grab of the handles but once released, I am set to go! I can easily load my boat onto the holders, tie it down, raise the unit, put in the pins, secure bow and stern ends, and off I go.
For those who are horizontally challenged, getting older and less spry or just plain want an easier and faster method to get moving to the water -- this unit will fit the bill.
Hubby said to buy 2. Didn't argue with him and he likes them too.
