8 Place Kayak Rack Details
The 8 Place Kayak Rack is constructed from Northern White cedar which is rated best for weather resistant. Each rack has 4 5/8 inch post and feet and 3 in rails, and can hold up to 8 kayaks or stand up paddle boards. Custom 8 place kayak racks can be ordered by calling 1 (715) 543-2006. Each rack is glued, bolted, and screwed with galvanized screws. Joinery where arms meet posts are 2 inch mortise and tenon giving full strength. Kayak Rack comes disassembled, but is very simple to put together with the torque-bit found in assembly kit and a cordless drill or the like.
For best longevity please choose one of the 2 finish options. We offer Natural which is light and may match your house or docks better. The Canyon Brown makes rack melt more into most backgrounds. We use a transparent penetrating oil to allow the wood to breath. This also enables you to recoat with ease when you see signs of wear.
For Do-it-Yourselfers, use a stain or outdoor finish in the color of your choice and follow the instructions on the can. Breathable finishes will extend the life of the rack the most. It is best to let the wood age a bit prior to finishing it. This helps the stain to soak in. You can also choose to leave it unfinished. In this case, it will weather to a gray color and still last for many years.
Easy to lift kayaks in and out. Locking kayak is easy with a cable lock from local kayak store. Durable kayak storage racks, can carry the heaviest of kayaks! Soft rest UV webbing available and tie down safety straps available now.
We want you to enjoy your Log Kayak Rack for years to come. To ensure it’s longevity, we recommend that the feet are not in direct contact with the ground, but rather raised and set on landscaping block or a similar product.
Our Kayak Racks can be bolted to dock or such or kit can be bought for anchoring to the ground. We can install strapping to prevent any wind blowing the kayak off (this would be a rare occurrence).
For extra-long kayaks or boats we can lengthen cross rails to accommodate. We can customize any rack for your row boat, paddle boat, etc. Several boats, kayaks, canoes, and paddle boats can fit together on the racks. Custom racks can be cemented into the ground or bolted to a platform.
Call for information as to which designs would work best for your assortment.

Can I secure this Kayak Rack to the Ground?
Yes. You can bolt it to any wood surface with wood screws. There are also kits you can purchase from our online store, use the following instructions to do so using our kit.
- Insert the sharp tip of a spiral ring anchor into the dirt near the bottom center of the rack, if you are using one twist anchor. If you are using more than one, evenly space out.
- Twist the anchor by hand so that it spirals into the soil. Stop when the spiraled section is completely hidden underground and only the ring on top of the anchor is visible.
- Run a chain, cable or straps through the ring at the top of the anchor, then pass this same line over and around the center cross rail on kayak rack.
- Secure the cable or chain using a small padlock or combination lock if desired. Tighten straps to keep rack tight to the anchors in the ground.
- This method can be completed by using a kit purchased from LogKayakRack.com or purchase your own online or from a store. This method can be used to protect the rack from being stolen or from strong winds.
