To be fair... I believe a "bed of truck" carrying method for the NuCanoe wouldn't be a one minute set up... More Like 5...But again, I overdo it. Car topping a heavy boat is the issue.... You need to get 100lbs of balky, poorly balanced load 7 feet in the air, and then restrained against winds coming from 70MPH driving, and then tied front and back.... that's when the long durations come up. Doing a light kayak on the rooftop would cut the time in half. Back of pick up truck.... The disadvantage of a heavy kayak are less.It takes me about a minute to load and secure my boat in the bed of my truck. This means that even getting out for a short trip, it's worth the trouble, plus I can launch at less than ideal locations. I will not get rid of this boat when I have my larger SOT.
