  1. Thanks for the video! I have that same dilemma with my canoe. I just tied my canoe on the roof and it scratched the roof. I had to have it repainted. So now with this my roof won’t get scratched. Thanks!

  2. I like it. Just I wish that I had it in the late 70s. We had to roll up to blankets and put it on the roof of my car, and then tight down. It worked. But I like the system better!

  3. You’re first canoe?! I kept my Mohawk in my apartment living room in college. Put a Thule rack on your Bronco and it will be a canoe hauling beast. Get rack that clamps to rain gutters on cab and you’ll have to mount “rain gutter” bases on the plastic top. You can easily remove rack in off season.
