Canoe on tjl hard top?

So, I'm not sure what kind of live load my jeep tjl hardtop can handle, can I put a full sized canoe up there? I would be using two boards running the width and some 1k pound max ratchet straps...

You should be alright. I would take 2x6's instead of boards,put them on edge, and cut a radius in them to match the roof contour side to side, then pad them with some carpet to keep from eating the finish.
