I thought about adding this to the trailer/roof rack post, but it probably would be lost in the fray. Anyway, I happened to see a car with a rack that might, or might not have been used for transporting kayaks, or canoes that was unique from any other that I have seen. I'm a trailer guy myself, so I have not paid that much attention to roof racks. The one in question consisted of two crossbars attached to the car roof and then a long square aluminum beam with a couple of saddles on it attached to the crossbars. It caught my attention because it seemed to me that it answered the issue of saddle spread where most auto roofs are relatively short compared to boat length. The beam allowed the saddles to be placed anywhere and would even allow for more than two saddles for optimum support. With that ability to spread the saddles and have more than just two, it also seemed to me that it would lessen the advantage of placing the boat on edge--as in J-hooks. Just for curiosity, has anyone seen, or know of such a rack.
