Re: travelling with 2 kay

Peter, are you planning on using the boats just in fresh water?
The salt will not hurt them as long as you rinse them with fresh water once you get to Washington. Road grit may be a small issue, but if you've epoxied the boats well enough, it shouldn't be that big a deal. I've traveled about 2000 miles with my boats on top of the car with nothing but bug guts on them to show for it. I wouldn't worry too much about road grime.
The biggest concern would be your racks, but they should be sufficient as long as you have bow/stern lines attached to both boats.
