Re: Building/modifying sailing kayak?

It depends in part on the vehicle and heavily on the sailor. When I was 30 I could cartop a boat that was way over 100 lbs. Now I can just do one under a hundred, and really prefer 50 lbs or less. I cartop a hundred lb boat spring and fall, once each way. I wouldn't do it every week. Wheels for the hull help, a roller on the back of the vehicle roof helps. Trailers are easier.
