The bars on my 2012 Outback will pivot around to become cross bars, and they have the same spread as the Yakima setup I currently have.
The Bowdown J cradles will attach to them (although I have not tried driving with a boat on them.
I would occasionally drive this car with two boats on top.
So I guess the setup will work, but just not sure how the security of teh setup would be compared to the full on Thule rack. May not be any less though which is why I hope someone out there can comment based on their experience.
Just seems like having the Thule rack on their might be redundant and unnecessary.
