Re: Luggage rack??

Not so much a work-around as an avoidance issue. The few gel cracks evident are from spanning the supporting ribs with shifting weight. Once sealed, I'd like to NOT have the problem exacerbated by the [direct] weight of stowage. A superstructure of some type, distributing the load, would work for supercargo or body weight while setting/trimming the main.

Just 'blue-sky-ing' alternatives on a Winter's day.

I'll check the 4X4 sites as recommended...thanx

Google up suv or wrangler roof racks and you will find several powder coated aluminum basket racks. Not sure how great this will look, no matter what you make them from. Depending on how neatly you pack and the containers you use, it could look like the Clampetts.

I won't lecture, but working around a known problem on a boat is usually regrettable.

So do I, sort of but they don't look like any boat I'd want to own. Seriously, you probably could use one of those roof bins as a deck box on some of the new boats - especially the "running shoe" style ones. It would probably work well on a Hunter or last generation Bavaria.

Why? Oh, and before you start, don't even try and say your example looks better than mine. Hehe.

Like this... obviously for a smaller boat you'd need to make it smaller than this one.

One of these won't make your boat look like a Volvo wagon.

Where can you buy those rocket boxes and and can you
buy in complete packages!
You can get them from Thule (as on the one in the pix). Another, slightly cheaper version is by Graber (made in my home town). They are usually mounted to the companies rack system. However, is would be simple to mount them to just about anything.

Okay, it's a rack, but not luggage
