So I am going to throw a kayak rack on the OB 13 and at the dealership I can get the Subaru one and clips for 25 percent off - Any concerns about it? I am hauling a 11'6" kayak on it. Would it be conducive to get some tie downs to run at the bow and stern to stablize?

Thanks!:29:

For safety as well as reduced wind loading, I would as least tie down the front. Some states have laws that require front and back tie downs if what is on the roof extends beyond the most forward part of the windshield. This is a good indication as to when tie downs should be used.
