Hi all,
Just wanted to follow up here, I'm glad to see this generated so much interest. I actually ended up with a different boat, a 13.5 Liquidlogic Inuit, but from what I am experiencing I am sure a longer boat would work just fine too.
These sea-to-summit thingies really work! And I love that I can take them off and put them on in no time, for when I don't want to have the added drag. I use a nose strap and a solid bomber tie-down on each of the removable racks. Without the nose tie-down I kept the speed under 55-60, because I was getting too much bounce for comfort. With it, I have gone up to 70 without any hint that there was any movement or risk thereof.
Thanks!
