Transport carrying box and stand - all in one
One of the coolest RC Boat carrying devises was created by a Roger Sköld. While this particular devise was made for a Seawind, I am sure with very little if any modification, it would work just fine for your Vela.

Let me know what you think. If I had an SUV, I wouldn't need to demast my boats. I'd just fold down the rear seats and lay it on it's side - with a pillow under the mast to support it.
I have an Acura TL - so I have to remove the mast. I lay the bottom of the mast and the booms fully assembled on the luggage tray and support the remaining section of the mast with a bungee cord suspended across the back seat hooking each end of the cord on the grab handles mounted inside the car. Those things you'd hang your coat on.
Works great. Depending on which boat I am transporting will determine if I remove the keel and rudder. Generally, I don't have to.
Anyway, thought you'd like the carrying box idea.
