Can you Carry a Canoe on the SeaSucker Monkey Bars


I have a 2020 Honda Odyssey without existing factory installed rails. I would like to use the seasucker roof rack with a 16ft canoe. I have not been able to find any testimonials or reviews that specifically use a canoe with the seasucker. Do you know if a canoe would cause to much upward lift/pressure that would overcome the 210lb pull strength of each of the seasucker vacuums? The canoe would still be tied down at the front hood/bumper and rear hitch for additional stability and strength.

Using the SeaSucker Monkey Bars, part # 298-SX6000B, on your 2020 Honda Odyssey is a great choice for a roof rack.

It will work with your canoe so long as it is under 150 pounds (also check your owner's manual to ensure that it can handle that much). If your canoe is under 150 pounds, then it won't pull up enough to overcome the 210 upward pull limit.

I do recommend using the SUP and Surfboard Pads for SeaSucker Monkey Bars, part # 298-SA1022. This will keep your canoe from getting any dings from the bars of the Monkey bars. I've linked to a video review of this below.
