  $40 roof rack
  Posted by: drjay9051 on Oct-13-12 7:15 AM (EST)
 

I would be wary of any type of universal roof rack.

Clearly a rack which is specific to your make/model of vehicle will cost quite a bit more however ask yourself this : " Is my boat worth more than $40?"

Point is if the rack fails you may damage or total your boat and possibly cause injury to others!

Personally i like the Thule rack system. Besides they are the only company that has a rack for my vehicle (09 Genesis sedan).

Yes I balked at the thought of dropping $400 for a rack but it will last me for the life of the boat and i have peace of mind.

Just my thoughts. In the end it's your call.
