I do feel that J-racks have some utility. With a slender and light kayak, like my folders and skin-on-frame, they are super easy to solo load and put less stress on the hull fabric and skeleton frames since the weight is on the side and chines. But these are boats that weigh less than 35 lbs, that I can easily lift over my head.
Also discovered that a J-rack is great for hauling bundles of electrical conduit and plumbing pipe. :-)
Celia, I completely agree -- when did this age thing happen?? (I'm coming up on 63 in June, argh.)
BTW, belated apology for my "butt call" to you a few Saturdays ago. Finicky cell phone, deep pocket, random jostling, hands tied up wrangling construction materials ........ Didn't realize it was you I had disturbed until several hours later when I checked the call history. Hope all is as well as can be up your way.
