Necessity is the mother of invention as we always say and it holds true even today. TDI Power Rack boat loader is such a good example of such innovation. In 2007, owner/inventory Brian Ohnemus had invented a boat rack to haul his boat while pulling his camper as a way to save money from ridiculous gas prices we’re experiencing all over the globe.

While the invention is great, I hope Brian will take time to improve his website and perhaps engage more in marketing this bad boy. Here’s the gist from Quincy Herald-Whig:

“While getting all the gear ready for a weekend family camping trip, I realized I had a problem,” he said. “Skyrocketing fuel prices had made it unrealistic to continue taking two separate vehicles to pull the camper and boat. I was forced to leave the boat.”

During that weekend, Ohnemus began working on the boat rack idea that has since proved so popular.
Admittedly, there was quite a bit of trial and error, but the end result was worth the headaches.
“It’s what I believe to be the most innovative truck rack you could find,” Ohnemus said.

He regularly received compliments and inquiries about the rack, and he finally decided to try to turn the concept into a business venture.

“It took me about six months to redesign the rack to make it suitable for mass production,” he said. “I also had to get all of the legal work, insurance and corporate paperwork in line. In January, we were finally ready to market the ‘Powerrack’ to the masses.”

Ohnemus said things began to happen quickly. He said at least three major manufacturers have contacted him about licensing and mass manufacturing the product. He said there has been especially strong interest from the West Coast.

Ohnemus, who said all parts used in the racks are produced locally, emphasized that he is learning as he goes.
“Designing and building is the easy part,” he said. “The business end is all new to me.”
