Advice on roof racks needed for a newbie

First post by a new boat owner....


Well I just ordered two Native Watercraft Versa Boards for inshore fishing and SUP'n and also plan on getting a LL Remix XP10.

We are going to use my wife's Honda Element to transport the boards as it already has a set of Yakima racks on it. The issue with the Element is that there is about 50" from the rear rack to the back of the vehicle. This rules out a rear load even with a Yakima Showboat.

So I have been considering a Yakima Boat Loader to load from the side but I am not sure what the best way to secure it to the racks is. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Get yourself some cam straps. And rig to flip any where you go. Unless of course you don't need the gear when you get there. Where ever there is.
