After securing our 2 16's to the roof of the van to move from one lake to another in Algonquin last month, I made sure everything was secure....except for the front hatch on one. After getting up to speed on Hwy 60 my daughter said "sounds like something hit the road behind us". Sure enough, the hatch cover floated off and landed in the middle of the road doing about 60mph. I was able to wave off an oncoming RV just before it was about to crush it.
I'm glad I glassed the covers as the only damage was a slight ding on one of the edges....easy to repair....
I'll be anxious to read the suggestions in this thread....
