  All boats are independent
  Posted by: korey99 on Apr-22-13 12:55 PM (EST)
 

Yes, the outer boats' straps thread through the stacker and over both boats, and loop around the crossbar. It's not dependent on the inner boat.

I really can't do proper bow/stern lines for a couple of reasons. First, less than 2 feet stick past the crossbars. Secondly, as I understand, those lines should both pull in, or both pull out. My stern lines need to pull in, because they're behind the back of the truck. The bow, however, sticks about 1 foot over the cab of my truck. I'd either have to go up and over the cab to the front (which will mean both lines pull forward), or back to the crossbars. "Snub lines" are the best I can do, I've been told.
