I recommend the Yakima EvenKeel Flexible Boat Saddles for Roof-Rack Crossbars # Y04052. These saddles will work well with kayaks up to 80 lbs in weight. This carrier is for kayaks only. If you are looking to carry a canoe, I recommend the Keelover # Y04069 which will carry a canoe turned upside down. These mounts don't work for both canoe and kayak, but are boat specific.

If you don't already have a roof rack for your 2016 Ford F-250 Crew Cab, I recommend the Rhino-Rack consisting of:
Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 59" Long - Qty 2 # RRVA150B-2
Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs for Vortex Aero Crossbars - Naked Roofs or Fixed Mounting Points - Qty 4 # RRRLKVA
Custom DK Fit Kit for Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Roof Rack Legs - Naked Roof # DK190

I recommend using the locking metal cores # RRVA-LEC4 to secure your roof rack.
