Allen, I thought you would know better...  Makes a good piece for KFM tho...  ;)
Do it until you scream, then a short pause is acceptable.
Mental?  perhaps

I didn't know better.  Uh, yes, I did.  Well, I crossed my fingers and prayed.   :smt002  Actually the kayaks were secured enough, especially with a single yakima bar up front, that I certainly wasn't worried that the whole thing would break loose and fly down the highway.

Rudy was just unable to get the feet for the 2nd bar in time for our trip.  The joys of limited supplies for stuff like this in Alaska!  So we made due with what we had.  It did work for our needs and we got to where we wanted to, and back.  And yes, it made good for lessons learned!

It's ok. I bought it from my parents for 500 bucks after my truck threw a rod. Late forties and still mooching from the parents.

Can't even repaint professionally without doubling my cost. lol. Function over form. SUV still runs. Not a pretty vehicle but it's a primo tackle box!  Haha.

That's also my excuse for the "brilliant pink" reel. Dang that thing catches fish. GF is insisting I get my silver two speed avet sx serviced.

When God said get in line for brains, did you think he said trains?   :smt044 :smt006  Then took the next one out of town.

Got it. I just need to stuff my kayaks into "bags" and I'm good to go!!!  Lol.

Maybe I'll just spend 30 bucks on another foot for a rack...kayak " bags" for an outback sound pricey AND a PITA!
