This is an addendum to my previous review of the LandShark saddles. I'm upgrading them to a 10. Here's why...I called Yakima about the problem. Before I even got it out of my mouth, they asked if I had a gless boat. Yup! "Oh, so sorry, but the LandSharks are designed specifically for plastic boats. They'll eat your gelcoat if you put glass on them." So, used as intended, they get a 10.
Now about Yakima...They gave me full credit on the LandSharks against an upgrade to a set of Mako's with special pads to protect my boat from further damage. Since they can't do anything about the chafing that already occurred, I call that downright upright. I'll continue to do business with them for anything I need to carry my toys!
