Yes, it is sitting directly on the rack. The crossbars do have rubber inserts that helps prevent sliding.

Hmm, the hull must be stronger. I don't think you could get away with that with an AI.


I've had it up there for about an hour and did not notice any ill effects. If I were to leave it up there for more than a couple of hours I'd probably turn it upside down when transporting.

Up-side-down is the best way - resting it flat like that 'will' cause dents after time - especially when it gets hot! (plastic gets soft when heated)
Figure a way to cradle it would be my recommendation - or flip it over - the deck is way more suited to resting flat like that (review the owner's manual of any kayak and they all state the same thing)
