  Are you totally committed to J-racks

and the 62 pound boat?

Several friends and I all have Malone SeaWings and we are all petite women. One drives a RAV4 and the rest drive sedans. Each of us can load our boats without help, using a rug or bathmat to protect the car, and shoving the boat up from the back.

But none of our boats weigh over 45 lbs.

I tried J-racks but couldn't load them by myself without taking out the mirror. They were easy to load with two of us, but I go solo a lot.

Tall SUV, heavy boat, J-racks: sounds like a "perfect storm," to me--but I am wimpy and have a bad back.
