We use Yakima racks with canoe mounts (cleats?) that hold the canoe in tight in the snarliest of winds. The round bars are long enough to accommodate a mountain bike used for shuttling back up the river.
The canoe is a canvas-covered, cedar-ribbed 16 foot Chestnut Prospector. Weights about 75 lb. dry and over 90 lb. wet.
Night armour Xterra 2006 Off-Road, after-market Bilstein shocks, 5th rear leaf spring, Michelin LTX M/S^2 4-season tires, Pennzoil Platinum 5W30 motor oil, JVC GPS/Receiver, otherwise stock. 205,000 km/127,000 miles. Handles steep loose rock very well.
