going on a trip this weekend but the route we want to do is 40km away from the rental site.
I don't have a roof rack but I have blocks.
I can secure the canoe with 2 straps from the back doors and the front doors but will this be enough?
The tow straps or hooks on the car don't exist and the only place to get them from is a volvo dealer - none nearby. They take eyelets.
I could make some sort of metal wire strap plus hook on the back to hold it but not the front.

how about two ropes/end tying onto|

the straps or additional ropes(which are tying gunwales/blocks down tightly). Tie the end ropes up near the doors(or if weather is good...inside through and out the other side)..if not causing possible damage.
This is what you need...|

...that I still needed to rig the fender straps described above on my latest canoe hauler. For less than $10 at my nearest outdoor supply store, I got enough strap and grommets to rig at least a dozen vehicles - including the tools to install the grommets (I lost my old one).
Open the hood|

Find a cross brace or equal on either side of the radiator. Pass a rope under it and tie it in a loop long enough to come out from under the hood when you close it.

How about using the Advice Forum.|
