Hello fellow PA devotees:
I guess I put the cart before the horse - my new 2012 PA is being delivered on Friday. Great news! Unfortunately, I haven't worked out the roof rack details yet. Not so great!
Anyone have any advice for a suitably strong roof rack system (manufacturer and model + accessories) to carry a Pro Angler atop a 1996 Saab 900S (4door with hatch)?
I have it in mind that I would like to transport my PA top side facing down (mid ship pull bars facing my roof). Anyone else transporting their rig this way?
Hobie rep. suggested a trailer, but I'm still leaning towards a roof rack setup. Cost and storage
are big factors. I've looked at stock Thule and Yakima base rack setups with the Outrigger ll and Boatloader load assisting pull out bars respectively. I even found an Australian company --Rack & Roll -- that has a robust ad on load assisting bar and support leg setup (see http://www.rackandroll.net.au/
Any suggestions (and roof rack pics) would be greatly appreciated.
