Every time we've bought a kayak, before we've closed the deal the clerks have always discussed with us how we're going to get the kayak(s) home. It turns out that some people do purchase kayaks at kayaking shops without giving a second thought as to how to get their new boats home. All of which makes me wonder if this is not exactly what we're seeing here. According to the media report, someone in southern Florida thought this was an acceptable method of transporting a kayak down a highway.
Kids, don't try this at home.
