Having decided to transport your Weta on the roof of your vehicle, the next question is how do you get it up there without assistance.

There are side and back slide loading systems which use a winch or electric drill to slide the boat up a track and onto the roof.

This is the BoatHoist Sidewinder electric boat hoist which includes a 12 volt electric winch with remote control.

The Rhino-Rack Side Boat Loader is similar product powered by an electric drill but it uses two winch attachment points providing a more even pull when loading.

There is also the rear mounting system from Mozzi Boat Loaders which uses their own custom trailer/trolley with rear mounted wheels to prevent the boat from grounding at the stern – but it would make the boat nose heavy when moving it on the trolley during launching. It *may* be possible to modify this to use a Weta Trolley with temporary dolly wheels mounted under the stern of the boat during loading/unloading.
