Roof rack options

Hey guys

Just checking out roof rack options for my Hyundai Accent 5 door hatch. The only ones I can find for it are $240 and $299. I will only need the to transport my yak as I have a box trailer for anything else I want to transport. Just don't want the hassle of towing trailer long distances to launch my yak and I always hear reports of trailers getting stolen at boat ramps.

I dont really want to attach anything through my roof as that is the only fitting options for the roof racks I can find for my car. On the viking website there is some you just lay on your roof and then tied through your doors, but how do you tie off the kayak on them? Plus they are also $190. Anyone got anything similar to this that they can recommend for me. It is an added expense that I didn't expect when setting my budget for the kayak.

I know boat stands for Bring Out Another Thousand but wasn't expecting it for the kayak as well!!!!

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for the roof rack idea occy. I just paid for my second hand Prowler 15 and was wondering how i'm going to get it home, lol. The car i'm using to transport the yak is a daweo Lanos (small little 2 door car), will this be a problem seem as though the P15 is 4.5 m's long?

Fisher- i'll be sure to take some picks of it on the car (should be a funny sight). They guy who i bought it of said he would deliver it today, so i don't have to worry about getting roof racks 2day :) .

Dodge- Thanks for the tip :)
