if you hang the canoe right side up, the stem points will hit the ceiling first, limiting how high you can put the boat - that may or may not be significant.
I hang a WW canoe with about 4" of rocker crosswise above my F 150 - bottoms up gives me the most clearance above the truck - if I hung it gunwales up, the stems hit the ceiling first and the center of the boat hangs 4" lower that way - so I hang it gunwales down for maximum clearance - only the ends are lower that way
