Thule Portage

This is a super simple rack yet very effective and safe way to carry a canoe. Small padded gunwale cradles offer soft support, and something to tie down to.  The gunwales are now ramped for ease of loading and unloading.  A new center strap has been added for extra security and its new universal mounting hardware gives any vehicle with crossbars the potential to be a canoe shuttle. 


Availability: In stock
