    I have been considering putting racks on my shell to hold my surfboard, paddle board. Does anybody have any suggestions on rack styles or types? I was also curious to find out if there is any wind noise?

    Because I had yakimas on our passenger car, I just got adapter feet and bolted them onto the Snugtop. No wind noise to speak of, but everything is pretty far back, so that kind of accounts for it. (They are noisy on the subaru.)

    I've carried normal loads (ladders, bit of lumber/sheet goods) regularly, and maxed out once with about 300# of lumber. (That was scary, and I kept it super slow/smooth/short.)

    Because of the placement of the towers on the car, the towers on the shell are technically a little too close together, but it hasn't been an issue for me. YMMV.
