Roof Rack Questions

Thoughts on saddle racks for WW boats?

I have an SUV (Pathfinder), and grew weary of stuffing my boat inside.

Thinking of grabbing Yakima or Thule saddle racks, in part to keep the profile lower.

Thoughts/experiences with these? Pros and cons? Will only be transporting 1 boat, so no need for stackers.

Unless you plan on paddling alone, chances are you will need to transport more than one kayak...for that reason I highly suggest stacker bars over a saddle, much more versatile.
