Well...mebbe not a luggage rack per se; but a deck/roof mounted rack to secure and stow gear atop the cabin. Something like a roof rack on an SUV or bigger 4X4? I have mebbe 4 feet unobstructed fore and aft from the companionway hatch to the region that would interfere with the boom vang..depending how the load gets piled.
I'd like the option of stowing items on the cabin roof; but don;t wish to place them on it directly. Mostly to keep the area dry and breating and somewhat due to a sorta soft portion of the deck. Plenty of width available and I'd likely use only half of the nearly 8 feet of it. A 4'X4' rack might be ideal?
Now to consider materials. Perhaps stainless. Mebbe teak? or even PVC?
Anybody use or come across anything similar?
