You could put some blankets down , sure BUT you hit the wrong bump or swervre in an emergency (can't predict those can we) you could have a...

    Sunfish on CRV

    If your rack is rated for 75 pounds then DON'T put a 140 pound sunfish on it ! If the Rack fails you at best scratch the you know what out of your car paint , and at worse injure someone , Hoping Beldars advise is somewhat in jest if not.....Bad Beldar !:eek:

    Bigger Sail for a Sunfish

    You are suggesting 44% increase in sail area ?????? By the time you make accomadations of design you may just as well try a bigger boat. I would venture that the radical change to sail area you are suggesting will not only create a bunch of other problems , It won't improve performance in the...
