    Any of you all have a canoe/kayak rack you’d recommend? Thought I’d ask given aluminum roof and all that.

    Only Yakima has a rack that fits.
     
  3. There’s an old thread on the subject with photos and specific parts mentioned.

    “Roof rack for Clarity.”

    There’s a kayak as long as the car with a string tied to the front bumper, maybe there’s one on the back as well. I’d recommend adding a hitch installation to the project and procuring a solid support for a third point of contact. This would only be done to reduce the risk the of the watercraft executing a Triple Lindy or converting the car to a ragtop.

    Thanks—I’ll review that thread. I haven’t used a roof rack system before, so didn’t realize that a kayak rack would fall into the same category.

    The roof is steel, you can do a magnet test to confirm. It is probably stronger than your typical sedan because it has to support a much heavier car in case of overturning.
