Was that a custom build? It looks pretty low profile.

Here in Miami there are lots of aluminum fabricators for boat towers. I had this one made to my specifications for our kayaks. It works well and very low profile but I've decided to modify and make it a basket style rack. I will be able to carry all the paddles, seats, etc. inside basket with kayaks on top.
