How To Measure Your Boat

How To Measure Your Boat

Want to know how to measure your boat? Measure 3 feet out from the center of your boat in both directions. The dimensions we have displayed are not absolute, because the shape of your boat is a factor that we can not account for.
If you are unsure, please email us with the model of your boats.

Canoe Roost, 40 in. or less at the beam.

Kayak Condo, 28 in. or less at the beam.

Kayak Tilt, 14 in. or less at point B

Woodlands W2000 Tilt Cradle Starter Kit 1, 12 in. or less at point B

Woodlands W2001 Deep Hull Cradle Starter Kit 2,  26 in. or less at the beam.

Use the chart below to determine how far apart yours should be. These dimensions are approximate. Your results may vary.

Length of boat (in feet)
6 – 8 8 – 10 10 – 12 12 – 14 14+
Distance between posts(in inches)
48 64 80 96 112

A good rule of thumb is to think of your boat as two halves. You then want to support the middle of each half. The reason for having them further apart is more about the stability of your boat than its weight distribution.
