Of how 21 ft plus solo outriggers were transported prior and after a windy (30+ kt.) open ocean race: Most were car/pickup topped upside down on padded Xbars with at least three (3) canoes resting side by side. Some were pointed forward and some were pointing backwards on the vehicle. None were tied down at the front and no saddles were used. Using saddles was the popular way to transport, but in high wind, upside down works best.
