Solid construction, easy to install/remove, and boat friendly. When not in use, they can be pitched back for less wind resistance on the highway without having to be removed.
These would've scored a 5 if they came with the adhesive pads by default.
Although these saddles are very tough, I still don't like the idea that the straps don't loop under the cross-bars. Your boat completely depends on the saddles to not break while going down the road!
