New boat, new Yakima roofracks and saddles, first time out --dent in boat second time out ,dent in boat, I won't bore you with the work it took to get the dents out or the phone calls to REI, Yakima, the Boats manufacturer etc. All were of no help. So i spend a few hours checking the website and reading the reviews of every roofrack on the market, as listed here on paddling.net.
That's how i found the Gullwings. I got them: problem solved. I carried my 14 ft boat in high winds on a 4 hour trip the boat moved a lot but there was never any danger of it being pushed of the rack. I think they are the best roof transport system for boats available in North America.
