Ski rack on hard top?

Hello

I wish to install a ski rack on top of my hard top. Anybody know a good one that fit? What do you suggest?

Thanks
Chris

I've thought about the Boxster Roof Transport System: Boxster Projects | Roof Transport System

I see them for sale used from time-to-time, but they seem to be fairly expensive. The advantages are that you can use it with either the hard top or the soft top, there are attachments for bikes and skis, and it should fit very well. I have heard reports that they generate a lot of wind noise.

Good luck

interesting concept (seasucker) but I'm scared about freezing temp. This morning its -17C (about 0F) and I think the vacuum pad would freeze, loss vacuum and blow away at highway speed.

I heard about similar story for the magnetic one (not that I can use it, aluminium hardtop) but I think I would feel safer having some kind of attachment to the car.

later
Chris
