    Gee, what's a guy to do? If you won't help you get chastised. If you offer, you still get yelled at.

    I guess the Millennials have the right idea. Put your thumbs and nose in your I-Whatever and people will think you just aren't aware.

        Super awesome job, and for a single trip you couldn't have done it any better.

        If that's what the OP has in mind, he should give you a call. If he wants to boat week after week, see the previous thread posts.

          I built something similar for a canoe I had. It was more a "sled" that I would slide up into the truck bed, with uprights to hold the boat above the truck cab. Bottom of sled was 1/2" plywood, and gear was loaded into the sled to weigh it down. Sled was secured to the truck with a couple ratchet straps, then boat and sled with another couple of ratchet straps. I could easily load/unload the plastic canoe by myself, but that was 30 years ago, and it wasn't a 14' aluminum boat....

            I did this with a 12ft tin boat in the back of my Ranger bed. I weighed it down, strapped it down, and drove slowly. I can't remember how I got it in there but rolled up to the ramp with a few extra beers to hand out and quickly got help from a few young bucks eager for free beer.

              And at highway speeds the air resistance would pull it out of the back of your truck and hit the car behind you.

              If you have to drive slow, the load is not secured
