Just like on-the-water skills, kayak anglers need get-to-the-water skills. Spend a Saturday at the launch and watch people scratch cars, pull muscles and drop boats until your funny bone hurts. Prevent injury to yourself and your ride by loading and unloading the kayak the right way.
When moving the kayak, bend your knees, straighten your back, and lift with your legs. Rest some of the weight on your thighs as you move the kayak to the back of the car.
