Several years ago, I damaged a pair of bicycles when they flew out of the truck bed at highway speeds, so I have a serious phobia around toy hauling.
Switching from ‘bed of the truck’ style hauling to the top of a Yakima Overhaul and seeking any input on the suitability of my tie down set-up. My plan is to wrap the HD bars in either pool noodles or black pipe insulation secured with zip-ties and then lay the Pungos side by side, deck down on the foam and secure them through eyebolts with cam straps. Bow and stern lines will be 550 cord through the grab handles and then back to the same eyebolts the cam strap is threaded through.
I’m hoping this set-up will see a lot of long highway hauls and lots of rainy weather. We are also wondering about cockpit covers that will handle highway speeds without imploding.
Thanks for any advice.
