Car Top Roof Rack
I have recently purchased a Lowe 1236 Jon boat and 6 hp 4 stroke Mercury. The spend our summers on board a Bayliner 3258 motor cruiser and mostly use the motor home (Monaco Cayman 38' PDQ) in the winter.
This little boat will stay with the motor home. Hopefully I'll catch some crabs this winter in Victoria harbour? And who knows what else?
This little boat will be riding atop our 2004 Cadillac Deville (on a dolly). We will be selling this car in a few months to buy a four down vehicle, but not until we have sold our present home, and downsized to a much smaller bungalow.
I was unable to find a roof rack that could be custom fitted to the car (Thule, Sportrack and Yakima have discontinued their "fit kits" for this car), so I instead picked up a set of foam blocks and ratcheting straps. My set up was $40, the other racks are closer to $400; and I sure wasn't interested in spending that kind of money for a car rack for a short time.
Has anyone here used these type of blocks? Hints?
