Lets face it, we all love owning kayaks and canoes because they are relatively inexpensive and a lot of fun. However, the can be difficult to transport due to its long size and lack of standard measures to have it secured on any vehicle. Most owners usually place the canoe at the back of their trucks in a slanting position or lying on the roof of their cars. Both methods do not ensure secure placement of the canoe, eat more space, and at the same time put both the vehicle and the equipment in danger.

Thankfully, Malone, a world-renowned auto rack company, has come up with a solution for this particular kind of problem in the form cart top canoe blocks. The Malone Standard Foam Block Universal Car Top Canoe Carrier Kit has everything you need to get your boat on the road, safely and economically.
