yakima rack and 16.5

Posted by James Eager on May 30, 2005

I have noticed/realized as I was glueing in the combing on my 16.5 that the straps will want to go right over the combing. This does not seem to be the best place to apply lots of tension as the combing is merely glued in and does not provide a lot of surface for the strap to go over. I am worried about car topping the boat in this manner...any thoughts on this?
