We carry two inflatable Sea Eagle kayaks. Excellent boats, sturdy and space savers.

I thought I might build something for my CJ5 toad but it would look rather strange "LOL"

Thanks Alan, I am not sure a inflatable would work for me, I plan to stand up and fly fist from one. ...

My problem is my CJ5 is a soft top so I would have to do something like a ladder rack mounted to the bumpers.

The 2 I am looking at are 12'8" and 13'2".    Do you have any pictures on how you do it?

Thanks

We have a folding Pakboat canoe.  The guy I bought it from used to stand up in it.  I know I wouldn't.  They also make kayaks.  Don't think fishing hooks would be a problem.  Pakboats.com -

Thanks BD I will give them a look.

Thanks T-Man, I already have a receiver hitch on the rear.  I could weld one under the front bumper and use 2" box and weld up the rest.

that is pretty nice looking and would not take much to remove it  ^.^d
