Boat top kia mixed results.

After moments of deliberation I decided to attach the boat tail to the Kia.
Then I strapped it to top of drivers doors.
I diddnt have time for a truly scientific test of its full capabillity but did notice slight drop in MPG and excessive push from the seabreeze coming from the south.
I opted not to raise the sail but did raise anchor on my way to a little memorial weekend fishing.

I will see your boat-topped Kia and raise you another boat:



This doubled the car's MPB* rating.

(* Miles per boat)
