    REI Members get back an estimated $ 4.00 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Seattle Sports Sherpak Boat Roller is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simply: It works I use this rig for an 18' hard-chine sea kayak. On a Honda Element, no way the side loader bars will work safely (I have a Yakima setup). This Sherpak device assists rear loading when your rear roof rack/saddle is too far from the back of the vehicle requiring you to rest the kayak on the back of the vehicle somewhere. One modification I made was to add 3 rolls of (1.5" x 12.5 yards) athletic cloth tape, and wrap it to built up the sides of the cushions fashioning a V saddle -just keep wrapping til you use up that much tape. This guides my hard-chine hull, and provides a soft grip surface that controls the kayak's lateral slide. Personnally, for my boat, I was hesitant to use the loader as is. The loader seems plenty strong, but I will inspect it frequently. The suction cups are extremely strong, tho you must clean the surfaces and be sure you have enough surface for the cup faces to fully cover. I do run a safety rope from my rear hitch to the stern of the kayak to insure the kayak does not slide away from the vehicle as I'm setting up to lift the boat up; adds a lot of control. This setup is ALOT cheaper than Yakima's Show Boat loader which really isn't that great of a design for all it does; especially if you have an antenna on the vehicle.
