setup that BREI mentioned...sounds good to me...will be the most secure...y/n? ...coming from a canoe guy...sooooo what do I know... Getting the secure connection from the footing to roof is most important as the Yakima components will work together great... That's the key area... With the good job that engineers of component-makers do...might wanna look at it... Most fuel-efficient car makers aren't going to put anything burly on carry even a single kayak or canoe...imho.
The weak point is the connection of bar to footing...and the whole Yakima-thing solves that...that is IF the Yakima Footing fits solidly into the roof or factory-footing.
