Does it right!
Seriously - If you put big bucks into your watercraft - you should invest in transporting it safely and securely. These brackets will do just this. I have an '06 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab with a camper shell. Yak bars on landing pads front and rear. Between these gunwale brackets and the supplied tie-downs I don't even bother with bow and stern straps. I've traveled from CA to NY at 80 mph in high winds and never had a problem. Love the security. The rubber pads and soft tie-down straps do a great job of protecting my cedar-strip canoes finish.
