canoe rack

The yakima site says the attachment to a naked roof for more than a short time can damage the door seals.....Naked roof means nothing up there, no rack of any attached so door shuts on that point.
Has anyone had this set up while towing a 5 er? We have a T bar in the
front reciever and canoe will mount hanging over front bumper clearing the
trailer in the rear....Advise of any problems encountered....I think a couple of bars are preferable to the foam blocks, but not sure....Help please.....Click image for larger version

I'm hoping to get a response on another forum about my Half Pack installation.
It appears Yakima put no thought into the Q clips for an F150 bare roof install.
The clips are not even marked so I have no idea if I even got the right ones!
This looks like

The weatherstrip does get smashed in nicely so it looks OK with the door installed.

I am very leary of a long term install.
