Snapperhead, I'm far from an engineer, but that seems like a lot of yak to hang off the back of your truck with only one visible strap holding those puppies down.  Hope nothing goes wrong for you.

'03 Chevy Silverado - doesn't have to have lots of miles to be a "beater"!

2 straps for 3 boats, and the wheel-barrow's riding "free-ball" style, no strap!   :smt003

I bought a 1996 dodge 3/4 ton cummins turbo diesel in nov '95 as a special order for about $31K. It has cruise control, but everything else is manual including the transmission. It does have $1200 worth of (old) stereo in it.

no computers were involved in running this truck, excluding the cruise control,  :smt002. all analog.

Bought an alaskan hydraulically raising camper to go with it a few months later (feb 1996).  $14K

Why did I get diesel? fuel range primarily, you can go further on a tank, but also just for fun, never had one before this one.

Sold the camper in mid 2004 just before I returned to my rented out house after I took a year off and travelled mexico and the continental 48 with my family. started kayak fishing when I got back.

put a ladder rack on to carry the kayaks.

I don't think it's ever been washed. ever,  :smt005

13 years old, but "only" 130K miles.

I'm still pretty happy with it, I'd love to make it to 20 years in it.

'91 Civic w/ about 198,000 miles on her. Only seen the mechanic twice. A true champ!!

We've got the identical car with identical mileage and identical mechanical history.  My son has inherited it and uses it for college.  It probably sees more interesting stuff now.  I once tied four yaks to the racks.

No doubt. They sure did something right when they made that car.

The civic used to be the ride of choice but it's now become the commuter due to gas going wacky. Now I roll like Da FishHunter in a murdered out CRV. Old school w/ the X-Factor.

I first started out bicycling to the fishing holes.
Two poles strapped to the frame and tackle in the backpack....No parking $$ and excercise to and fro!

Well, since this thread has moved on from "beaters" to kayak transportation in general I may as well post another picture.  Not a beater, it's my AYTV (alternative yak transport vehicle), aka my wife's car - a 2006 Honda CRV.  When I get to use this one I'm riding in style:smt004
