The Malone SeaWing universal car rack kayak carrier includes everything you need to carry one kayak bottom down on your roof top or trailer. The unique mid-mount design saves space and allows you to fit two kayaks bottom down on factory or after market cross rails. (with a second set of SeaWing carriers) The universal JAWZ™ mounting hardware fits round, square and factory oval cross rails.
Need extra roof space for cargo or a second kayak yet concerned about gas mileage? Turn to the low-profile SeaWing kayak/cargo carrier, which is truly in a class by itself.
The carrier's mid-point mounting leaves enough room to transport a second kayak (requires another carrier).
Construction features include corrosion-free polycarbon for the frame, ribbed synthetic rubber for the padding, cam-style load straps with buckle protectors, and 50mm and 60mm pre-coated mounting bolts (larger bolts are available for purchase if necessary). Compatible with the Malone Stinger load assist module, the SeaWing measures 27 by 5 by 6 inches (W x H x D) and supports up to 70 pounds.

A little shifting after getting 'yak all the way on and it fits well. Don't tighten the straps to the point of the center hull sitting on the wing. It should have a little space under the very middle to allow the yak to "float" as it rides.
Loosen the straps slightly if leaving yak on vehicle for extend
I regards to the on-road performance, I couldn't be happier. Stayed glued in place and no weird handling issues whatsoever. For safety, II passed straps under crossbar on both sides. This means it's held by more than just the bolts supplied with the SeaWing. Riding with SeaWings on but empty produced no noise; didn't even know it was there. I remove the straps when not transporting.
Loosen the straps overnight to avoid any indentation issues. It appears the load is well distributed, but relieving the tension over night or longer than say 6-8 hours should take care of any of those issues.
Low profile and with a thin leading edge, it created little to no wind resistance in and of itself. Yes, I take about a 1 mpg hit with kayak riding hull down.
For the front rope tie down, a secret trick to avoid the rope or strap from sliding and rubbing across your grill and good, you can try a replacement toggle handle for a kayak. Open your hood and see if you slip the handle inside engine compartment and close hood with small amount of rope loop sticking out side of the hood. Run turndown rope through handle loop as an anchor point. Don't crank down on the rope. Tight but not pulling boat bow down.
I think I'm going to like them a bunch.
edit 2019- have taken up paddle boarding in the meantime and discovered that the wings work very well for securing my solid boards atop the outer platforms, width at the strap holes works well and the boards are very secure with the straps cinched down tight.
the lower part of the rack. I then went to the wings and now load my boat from the back of my vehicle and this works perfectly. I have several kayaks and these wings fit all
of my boats without a problem. I own a Rav4 Toyota which sits a little higher than a sedan type auto so for me this is the best set up and I can load my boat by myself so
I don't have to depend on someone else if I want to paddle alone. The only reason I gave these racks 4 stars was because I do not like the straps that come with them. They
seems sort of cheap and when the red of the straps get wet, the dye runs.
