Sidewinder Electric Boat Loader - Flexi-Mount Option 

NEW Flexi-Mount System for canopy's on Dual Cab utes.

Traditionally all boat loaders had to be fitted onto either the vehicle roof or the canopy, not both as they move separately to each other. BoatHoist have now developed a Flexi-Mount system that absorbs the movement.  This allows the side boat loader to be connected to both the canopy and the vehicle roof giving you the extra support of a third roof rack.

All you need is 3 roof racks of the same height. If your two canopy roof racks are suitable you may not need this option so please phone to discuss before you order the Flexi-Mount option.
