 The factory racks are attached to sheet metal.  So you want to use a real
 rack -- not an adapter on the factory racks -- or be sure that the rack is
 just to keep it from sliding around on the paint and tie the canoe very
 firmly to the vehicle itself.  I use a real rack on my Caravan, not the
 factory rack.
 It is incredible that authorities will censor anything about making love,
 while doing nothing about the 1001 ways to kill and maim that the media
 teaches every day.  Which is truly obscene: sex or murder?
