Boat hauling set-up

Here's my boat hauling set-up. What's everyone else doing for hauling paddle-sport watercraft?

I actually used to transport this boat in the bed (it's 14.5'), using a bed extender. It still stuck out past the extender pretty far. I had too many close calls and it was just going to be a matter of time before some gray haired down here creamed my $1100 boat. I ordered a Yakima Half-Pack system, for the roof of the truck, and modified my Harbor Freight bed extender to extend up, instead of out. Really liking the set-up now. I have the bed available for all my fishing / paddling gear now.

Native Ultimate's should really be carried upside down. They ride much better and you don't risk damaging the hull. Just think if you left your boat out overnight, it rained, and now you have several hundred pounds of water in it. Bad times. Take the seats out and treat it like a canoe.
