Racked-out

Here she is with some used racks installed today. Yakima rail grab on the back, Q-towers & Q83 clips on the front - "custom" length bars (cut down 58" to about 53). Have about 36" between the bars - same as the spacing on my Cherokee, which is awesome (the Cherokee has toted around everything from kayaks, surfboards and bikes to a harrowing 30 minute journey with a waterlogged sunfish hull during which I thought my frame was going to collapse). Front isn't quite as solid as I'd like, but it is pretty secure and I'll see how it goes. Racks will primarily be used for local non-highway surf trips (all but one board will fit inside the car for long-distance or pre-work sessions).
