I already have one of the "T" bars to hold one end of the vessel. I guess I can get another one for the other end... but a nice frame could hold something else eh? lol thanks' ahead for any and all input.
Here is a page full of different Roof Racks
. Some of them are a little pricey and will hold way more weight than you're looking to handle, but they'll at least give you some ideas.
You might be able to get away with the "T" bar on the back and resting the the canoe on the top of the windshield frame (with some padding).
Just a few ideas for you. Let us know what you decide to do and if you have any other questions!
