Wonder if anyone has had an experience transporting inflated raft on top of vehicle. Would like to carry 13 ft Quicksilver upside down on rack I plan to build on Aerostar minivan to save towing from Fairbanks to Chitina/Valdez. I plan on keeping airflow between raft and van to a minimum or none. The bow should match to windshield slope and be somewhat aerodynamic ?
A bow rope would be attached to front bumper. Any thoughts on tiedowns, straps (it has a gunnel rope which runs clear around it), chafing problems, etc. would be appreciated. Thanks, Dan
