  Yakima ShowBoat
  Posted by: fitchm on Mar-13-13 10:14 AM (EST)

I saw a Yakima ShowBoat last weekend at Canoecopia: it appears to be their version of the Thule Slipstream. The roller bar extends out a little bit over the back of the car so you don't have to go the towel over the roof route. Their site advertises 34" beyond the rear crossbar.

I have the Slipstream and really like it: I've used it on a Subaru Forester and on my current car, a 4 door Golf. I must admit, though, that the ShowBoat looks like a better execution of the concept.

 Great Products from the Buyers' Guide:
