You may want to look into these racks:

I just installed one on my truck. At first i was concerned as they use bungees to hold my boats however I am sold on these.

They are not inexpensive at $200 per rack but are clearly the bestIhave ever owned and will last forever.

As you can see on their website they have three different models. i went for the standard model and removal is so simple. just loosen 2 nuts and in seconds you have a clean roof !

The nice thing is they can be switched from roof to roof without any problems.

I know what you mean about loading on a high vehicle.

I never thought i would be able to load onto the roof of the truck but the solution was as easy as a $30 3 step folding ladder from Home Depot

I place the bow into one of the V bars and than angle boat into the other V bar.

The owner of Good Boy Racks (Cliff) is readily available if you have any questions. He makes these racks as a side business and frankly they are by far the most efficient, cleanest looking and best racks i have ever owned.

I am surprised that the major companies like Thule, Yakima have not done something like this.

In my opinion the V bar system is far superior to saddles or cradles.

If I can offer any other information let me know.
