Submitted: 06-08-2006 by UnclePug

We use Riverside 18" universal blocks to carry two Necky Chathams side by side on our Mazda Protege 5 factory bars. The bars are only 32' apart and thus just bracket the cockpits. We haul either a 16' & 17' poly or two 18' composites. With bow and stern tie downs we have had zero problem with the boats moving around.

On one hot day I did get some hull deformation on the 16' poly because I had the bow line cranked down too tightly. I keep the bow and stern lines looser now.

TIP: I put the 16" poly Chatham on saw horses and poured a couple of gallons of hot tap water into the cockpit. After a few minutes I was able to push the deformation out with a block of wood. I then dumped the hot water out and let it cool.
