Kayak Roof Rack

Hi Goff,

Thanks so much for the pictures--that helps a lot. If I'm interpreting them correctly, it looks like you have bolted an "L" bracket to the bottom and made that your load-bearing component; however, I also know that you have support pieces that run parallel to the edge of the roofline. It looks like those rest on the edges of the roof, but I'm not sure how much load they're supporting. Thanks in advance for any clarification!

Pup roof rack

There is no weight on the roof except for side to side which is very little. The angle brackets on the frame are bolted on. The vertical pipe lengths are cut so there is no weight on the roof.
