Permanently mounted canoe roof racks are great if you always plan to use the same vehicle to portage your canoe. But if flexibility is on your ''must have in a canoe carrier'' checklist, the Foam Block Canoe Carrier may be the canoe carrying system for you. The four foam blocks fit snugly over your canoe's gunwale and won't scratch the roof of your vehicle. The foam block's non-skid bottoms hug your roof top, while the nylon strap secures the canoe to the top of your car. Use the four S-hooks and two 15' ropes to secure the canoe's bow and stern to your vehicle's frame or bumpers. Made in USA.
easy to use
This is a great way to carry your canoe on a car. When not in use it stores away in the carry bag till next time. I dont use the ropes but bought two more of the straps to wrap around the roof and the seats of the canoe.

Lacking, but not horrible
I bought this not really understanding what all I'd need to get the canoe to ride on my car. This kit contains most of what I needed, but It only has one cam style strap and at a minimum you'll probably want two to secure the boat across the hull. I went ahead and bought two ratcheting straps to replace the one cam strap that this comes with. The rope will be used as well as the S-hooks. However, I think that if you buy just the foam blocks at BPS and get a 50' section of rope to use and your own straps you can put together a better Kit for less than this one costs. It's not a horrible kit, it just needed better straps.

Simple and it works
You may not always want a roof type carrier on your vehicle. This simple rig can be used only when you need it and it works very well. For years on my sedans this foam block rig carried our old aluminum canoe many miles.
