I recently got my FX Propel. I haul it on a trailer which I made from an old boat trailer. I used bunk birds like on a boat to haul my previous Jackson kayak. I am having trouble getting the FX staring centered on the bolsters due to the shape of the bottom of the hull.
Any suggestions and or pics of how others are hauling their FX Propel would be great.
Thanks

I have a Tacoma with the 5' bed. I haul mine with a receiver mounted bed extender. The bottom is relatively flat and it rides well strapped to the cross bar on the extender with another line strapping it to the bed hooks for extra measure. I'll post a pic next time I toss it in there on my way to the lake.

I am using a Malone trailer to catty mine.  I load it directly onto the cross bars in the upright position.  I will post pictures when I load it this weekend.

Does this kayak need to be transported upside down, due to it being open cockpit with no scuppers?
My current yaks are sups and do just fine on the Malone sea wing roof racks.
I'm trying to avoid a trailer, that kinda removes the benefits of a kayak.

I would car-top upside down. It will help with wind drag and if it rains.....

I keep a hand pump with me and just pump the water out that gets in when it rains, so far it's not been a issue.

After much careful deliberation, it looks like I'll be hauling our two FXs on a Malone trailer as well. Getting a little too close to the weight limit of the roof. I guess my shoulders will be thanking me in the long run.

I bought one of those ladder racks that bolt to the truck bed. Gonna haul it upside down, tie to the front bumper and rear bumper. Think this will be ok? Mine is 14.5 ft so hauling it in the bed won't work and I don't have a receiver hitch so I can't use a bed extender.
