No knowledge about Yakima but my Thule serves me well.

I have a rear cradle that facilitates sliding the boat on rather than the roller and I like my cradle. I drive a Ford Taurus station wagon.

The rack comes off of the car very quickly and I generally keep it off.

I asked a group once if any had every had a boat stolen. None had but one had the boat removed and the rack stolen.
