in the 1960s. Took some josseling around from the woods roads, but once on highway..crosswinds would occasionally cause the heavy drag of the 18' cedar/canvas tandem to roam a little but the oldschool technique of slowing down always works.... Have those midship, gunwale ties include the inside thwart-to-rack as well...it is a PITA but secures both fore/aft and lateral slippage at same time...and the added bow/stern-to-corners fixes everything...but re-check if you come from a rough road...tightening up things beforehand can eliminate a problem on the interstate when you're catching chaotic windflow from trucks...
fwiw...
