I just bought a set of Rola kayak saddles for my roof rack. How do I position them at the optimal width to decrease Hull deformation when strapping down my kayak? I have a WS Tsunami 125 Kayak.
2 conditions for best result. First, if possible, adjust roof bars to be positioned under kayak’s internal bulkheads. Second set the saddles to provide maximum contact to hull.
- don’t use ratchet straps, 2. set the saddles so the boat does not touch the bar.
