I've just got one of these https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00 ... UTF8&psc=1 just tried it and it seems to work well. If anyone is interested.

This is rather cunning - KCS will be bringing this to market soon. ImageImageImage

Hi Mike, Thanks for posting this. It is now on the market and going well, we have just finished a device for loading it onto J cradles so that it cannot let the kayak when on its side fall off, or if there is a side wind.

I saw a very cunning kayak roller rack system on a car in Stonehaven made from a section of aluminium ladder, some stainless steel threaded bar and some skateboard wheels...didn't get a foatie though.

Kind of similar to mikeb's in a more ' hand knitted' style..
