The project is not yet finished. I just set the boat in the racks for now. I will build a canvas bag with a wood floor (with limber slots). The wooden floor will be around 8' long. fastened to the racks with SS tube clamps. A zipper keeps the whole mess secure.
The Garhauer rackclamps are 2 piece, so the lifelines stay up.. I had my kayak in them all the way down the west coast with zero issues. Some sloppy seas too.

So far...no. When I go across the pond, I might add extra lashings(possibly one of them to the upper stay). The racks sit on the toe rail as not to stress the stantions.
