Tumble home Posted by: bluemerle on Dec-25-12 8:20 AM (EST)
Brackets are useful if your canoe has tumble home; straps and ropes cannot be cinched tight enough to stop side-to-side movement. Driving conditions - distance, highway, trucks - also are factors for using brackets. I use them regularly with my Thule system (which I think is a far better rack than Yakima).
