Default Kayak Help

Hi all - Brand new to this forum. My uncle offered to sell me his 2014 hobie outback for an amazing price and just need some suggestions from the kayak fishermen out there as I am new to this.

1. I have a bare roof honda accord. Any
Opinions on Malone 50 inch versatile bare - roof rail system?
And then Malone SeaWing Kayak Rack to transport the kayak?

2. Only issue with kayak is there are small drill holes from where my uncle had his trolley system for his anchor. He is taking this system with him to his new kayak. Any suggestions on how to repair these small holes?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks and tight lines

Just about all rack manufacturers will have racks that will fit your car, flat roof, or gutterless or not. Not familiar with the one you mentioned, I use thule on my bare roof Tacoma. Just get a good pair of saddles.

They do make a compound that will mend small holes, go to the website of any kayak store or if local, stop in. And it sounds like he holes are above the waterline anyway so maybe just some silicone or epoxy will do the trick.
Be safe with it.

I'll have to look for that compound, I have a yak with 2 small holes from an old transducer. Of course, I haven't been yaking much and the yak is sealed (no hatch) so it really doesn't get that much water in it, even after a full outing (and covering them with temporary silicon)... still, would make sense to repair it eventually.

I'd put a trolley system back in its place you won't regret it

For the holes I'll second the motion to replace the trolley system if you want to fix it as Joe stated G-Flex epoxy is the best or plastic welder, basically a solder gun that you melt in some donor plastic. Some manufacturers will even send you welding rods for free.

You'll be fine with the seawings. If you do end up going a different direction with the rack IMO stay away from J type or stackers Outbacks are just too wide to be cartopped on there sides.
