"you can put minicell blocks on oval/flat factory crossbars ... I wouldn't do this for long highway trips but it's OK for local jaunts."
Respectfully disagree here. There is absolutely nothing wrong with foam blocks -- they merely support your kayak and do a very good job of it. It's the tie-down that matters, not what the kayak rests on. I've taken many trips of 300+ miles each way with no problems whatsoever. If I'm transporting one boat, it's my preferred method. I only go to the J-rack if I'm carrying two, due to space limitations.
