This is a follow-up for the Showboat I originally reviewed back in 2009.
A few years down the road and it still works great for me. I can have it on/off in about 15 minutes. My brother even installed it upside down on his SUV and was able to use it. I'm not sure if the hardware has changed much but I found there are two VERY IMPORTANT things when installing.
1.) leave a decent amount of play in the bottom bars so they slide easily.
2.) when installing the roller make sure the bars are even and fully inserted. The roller will not be able to 'lock' onto the bars. I'm using the canoe installation instructions, I've never tried the kayak install.
