anyone ever put a 10ft row boat on stock roof...

i'm getting a 10ft row boat to fish little ponds and streams. just wanted to know if anyone has had a boat of that size on the stock roof rack. i know the load weight is some where around 150 lbs for the rack. was thinking of welding up a additional brace that would insert into my hitch and extend up to help hold some of the weight. any info would help thanks guys.

I have often loaded up a couple of 12' kayaks on mine. Their total weight was just a little over 100# and had no problem. Adding the brace from the hitch should really help.
