Thule, Yakima, or VW for my duckies?

I'm finally putting a rack on my Jetta and I wanted to get some opinions on what to buy. Any good or bad experiences y'all have had might help me make up my mind.

Has anyone used the Volkswagen kayak setup? The only disadvantage seems to be that I can only fit 2 boats with this system. Maybe the VW cross bars will be compatible with the yakstacker...

Also, I don't have good front and rear tie-down points on my car (not necessarily for the duckies, but I'd like to put small rafts on the car too. Can anyone suggest a way to create them using a professional welder and existing hard goods?

Thanks in advance for the advice.
