I loaded the Dagger on my rack yesterday, by myself, and it went pretty smooth. I have a F250 with a Cargo Master rack. This is how I did it: stand the boat vertically on it's stern against the rear of the truck, rest the boat against the back bar of the rack, tip the boat onto the rack. It is not easy but doable. One you get the boat to the tipping point the weight of the boat above helps. My original plan of loading the boat upside down did not work as the beam was too wide, so deck up. A winch could probably be rigged to help loading and unloading. I'm working on that next.
