Custom Sail- Mast Roof Rack Quiver Box For Sale


Custom built aerodynamic shaped, Epoxy Composite Mast - Sail Quiver Box.

Hand built in Belgium in 2008 exclusively for windsurfing because I got tired of having no room in my car for anyone else to go with me due to the car being otherwise packed with windsurfing sails, masts, etc. Using the box I can carry 6-7 sails plus masts inside freeing up my right front passenger seat and lots of extra room inside the back.

The quiver box was four months in the making using epoxy, glass, and some carbon fiber, over a 4mm wood core. It is 10' long overall with 9'6"of inside usable space. It will carry sails up to 11.0 and masts up to 530cm long inside. Amazingly for its size it is only 38 pounds empty weight! Compare that to the 45-60 pound Tule and Yakima roof top boxes which are at least 2 feet shorter in length!! The rear rack attachment brackets can be extended to lift rear of box up off the rear roof rack allowing the car's rear hatch to fully open.

It is currently set up for the round bar Yakima racks with a 5' spread between front and rear racks. However, the box attachments can be altered to fit other rack systems.






Newly born with shiny new paint job. April 2008




Rear View - Note inside latch of key lock.


6-7 sails plus masts can be put inside!


Note the aluminum side brackets that lock the box to the rear roof rack bar but allow easy release.




Note the rear box lifted by the aluminum lift brackets to allow opening of the rear hatch of the car.

Hi Chuck - that's a really nice and sturdy and functional looking box. Basically a Quiverack on steroids, I'd say. Would love to find out a bit more about how you built it (dimensions, materials and such), as I'm considering doing something similar to go on top of my Tacoma's canopy.

Cheers,
-Andreas

Andreas,

Please give me your email address and I will contact you regarding building a similar sail-mast quiver box. I have sold this one and am getting ready to build another one for my new Toyota Tacoma as well.

Long time after your post Chuck.


This is a beautiful quiver box you made.

I too would like to have one.

Do you remember how you made it?

Please, if you could, send me instructions for building the box.


Hopefully this is being read in 2017.

Maybe someone from previous comments has instructions?
