I’m upgrading my original roof rack mod by replacing the angle plates that were made of steel with aluminum to aid in preventing any corrosion from forming again and migrating to my rooftop. This solution was a simple alternative for me as opposed to purchasing a roof rack for my Honda Element. Below are links to a downloadable template for my brackets for those that may be interested.
GOTTA LOVE UNI-STRUT! Camper mode of my Honda E has begun. DIY roof rack and trunk carrier with towing capabilities. 😉👍
A simple, non sailing, wip option that I came up with for the Hobie Adventure / Tandem Island kayaks that utilizes the Hobie Kayak Sidekick AMA Kit.

Why buy when I have the means to just make them. 1.98″ Trailer Wheel Bearing Protectors Dust Cover printed out of ABS plastic.
The maiden voyage of my Hobie Tandem Island turned out to be a little more adventurous than expected when all of a sudden we began to take on water in the hull. At the time I had no idea what caused that to happen but once I got all the water pumped out of the hull we were still able to have a great day of simple sailing with no more unforeseen issues. I am so glad that I had my water pump and sponges with me otherwise the outcome would have been very different.
Sibling bonding at its best while sailing and enjoying the beauty that nature has to offer that most take for granted or just never get to see and enjoy. 😊👍
