  long boat/short car - extreme!
  Posted by: old_user on Oct-11-12 9:59 AM (EST)
 

I have a 21' hawaiian outrigger canoe. It weighs 22 lbs at best. My car is a 13' honda fit. The canoe has no bow or stern tie down hardware - and I wouldn't secure it that way anyway because I can easily snap the fragile boat. I have Yakima Mako saddles that keep it fairly secure, but I worry about transporting at speed. Any suggestions for effective tie down on this crazy configuration (reminds me of Fred Flintstone and his giant rack of ribs!)
