Hi guys,


Thanks for the responses. I came back to let you all know that they did indeed fit perfectly. They're the stock, GM rails. I transported a canoe on them last night and they did the deed. My only gripe is that they're a bit narrow. My canoe is a fishing/flat bottomed canoe so it's wider than a normal - fast canoe.

But I got them for a steal, so well worth it!

A long time ago my father wanted a fishing boat he wanted to transport it on the roof of our old chevy.

He bought metal gutter mount roof racks, then added 1"x3" wood strips, a few inches wider than the row boat.

Perhaps you can add wood strips to the cross bars to get the extra width you need.

I wonder what police would think of it once inspecting for its level of safety. Usually cops follow the book to the T and hammer down on custom setups.

I used pool noodle pieces. I cut a couple up and placed a piece wherever a rope may touch the car, and as well; on the four corners of the cross rail. Gives the rail just enough more girth and also provided cushion and grip for cinching the boat down. Works great~!
