    A couple of weather anomalies showed the weaknesses of this rack system for my boat & car combination.

    Example 1 - I mounted my 8-foot sit-on-top recreational kayak as indicated by the Yakima literature with bow strap attached to tow hook on the nose of my 2005 CR-V. Since tow hook is offset left and it's easier to load the boat with the Hullraiser left-of center on my factory racks, that's where I put it. Got in a torrential thunderstorm in the southern Sierra. The rain and wind caused a loss of traction on the bow strap and it slid around the pointy nose of the CR-V. Good thing I was exiting the highway as the strap nearly fouled in the front wheel. A near miss! Called Yakima and they comped me some loop straps with grommets so I could attach the bow strap under the hood next time.

    Example 2 - Returning from the Sierra through the desert I ran into 60 mph crosswind at highway speed. That wide sit-on-top standing up on the roof was just like a big sail! Hullraiser creeped downwind on the crossbars and loosened the bow strap. Decided not to risk it. . . took down the Hullraiser and put on my trusty surf pads and laid the boat down on its deck. That rode better, but scratched up my rear door on the stern eyelet of the boat.

    Bottom line. . this rack system is ok for short runs with a not-to-wide boat.

    I've had the Hullraiser for just over a year and a half. Used it last summer several times and twice this summer.
    Normally we take the kayaks on vacations which involve highway speed for several hours.

    I find it very easy to load the kayaks above my car in to the cradles. There's no balancing act like there are with
    the last set of racks (much cheaper) that I had. I"ve found it helps to get the straps in place first before loading
    up the kayaks so you don't have to climb on top of the car to get them up and over the kayaks. Two pins equally spaced
    on the top of the rack would really help keep the straps in place. It's still workable though without them.

    This last trip involved a 7 hour drive and that's where we found the achille's heal of this rack. We have the "mighty mount" attach points that use the allen wrench. They have been super easy to attach to the car. The problem is the nut worked its way through the plastic of the mount and essentially the rack was only being held on by the second attach point. This was on the forward mounted carrier. Long story short, we made it to a tire store at the next exit and through the help
    of some super nice guys we were on our way again. They put a longer bolt through that used a washer and nut on the bottom of the mount. That didn't come off till I removed it all after we got home. I will buy some longer bolts to do the same on the rest of the mounts. I'm sure Yakima could come up with a fix to this problem. But, it's not something
    you can't do yourself. Just some longer bolts and a washer to support the mount from the bottom of the mount.
