Much appreciated. It sounds like it should work. What I had been doing when transporting my rec boat was tie it to the foam racks (surprisingly sturdy things) AND use an additional tie strap to loop through the plastic parts inside the cockpit and under the roof (closing doors over it). Driving up to 60 mph it bobbed a bit but never budged at all as far as I could tell.
The other concern I have is of how much it's going to protrude front and back given the length of the boat and the fact that the car is really short. Andů will I kill myself hoisting it around on my own? I would hate to have to become social now :)
