If you’re a rowing enthusiast and would like to take your sculling boat with you on a trip, you’ll need to invest in a roof rack and ensure the boat is safe and secure during transit.

With a conventional roof rack, your boat will be secure.  However as the boat is tied onto a padded metal frame, there is always the risk of damage and scratching because of the high pressure where it’s resting.

If you’re searching for a sculling boat roof rack that will look after your boat much better, the Tim Crooks complete sculling boat rack system can provide your ideal solution.  Instead of tying your boat to solid metal, you can cushion it from any bumps, shocks or jolts from the road.  These roof racks are design to avoid high forces and will ensure the boat is supported over a much bigger area using durable webbing straps, without every making direct contact with the frame or the car.

This is a proven, secure rack system which is now popular with rowers throughout the UK.  The racks are manufactured from galvanised steel which means they can be stored outside without any detrimental effect.

Each sculling boat rack is supplied with at least 10 meters of hazard tape, helping you ensure compliance with British law.

We also sell rowing boat ties (in a matching shade of red!)

These innovative roof racks were developed by Tim Crooks, an engineer and respected figure in the UK’s rowing community (having won the 1977 Superstars competition, 7 Henley medals and an Olympic silver medal in 1976).

The sculling boat car carry rack was created after a friend brought about an age-old boating problem to his attention and Tim provided a smart solution in the form of these racks.
