When I got my yaks I had a van with old 1" pipe bars on the roof, bound a piece of 3x1 timber on top with duct tape on each bar and covered with carpet; the front bar also had bound on a PVC tube for my side loader bar

Ugly as a hatful, but it worked for 8 months with no damage to the yaks, and carried both boats on top many times.

They are cheapest of all and the garbage tip probably has plenty on the cheap.

Red's tip re fore and aft ropes is spot on advice.
