A karitek rival? Esp for one

This looks good, expensive but good (if I have the conversion rates worked out correctly)

Note the loose fitting jacket to hide her bulging biceps :-)

Looks interesting though -- how much? That's a lot of cash......
So much sea - so little time to see it.

How did she get it from the car to the water?

Looks good I like the fact that you can remove the cradles

She used the superbly engineered shanks pony kayak carrying system.

Will it work for 2 kayaks or just one?
Note that the cockpit ends up facing in during transit so swept up ends might make fitting one boat each side problematic and a third in the middle is definitely impossible.

Also, if I had a nice C cradle like that (hint - I do) I would just carry the boat right way up in it rather than turning it up onto it's side....

It looks like a good piece of kit, but maybe lacking in flexibility and scalability?

Like I said --- "note the loose fitting jacket to hide her bulging biceps..." She also paddles so fast, the boat doesn't even get wet! ;-)
