It's May 19th 2020 and I've just upgraded to a Hornbeck "New Tricks" 14 @ 23# sitting atop of my 2014 Subaru Outback while at work.

Rhinorack HD bar on the cab, Spring Creek T-bar hitch on the back end. I scored the 71” HD bar for $18 off etrailer and the Spring Creek T-bar is extendable to 96” I believe. Enough to carry 2 boats. I suppose if I staggered the boats and they were solos I might be able to get 3 up there?

Yeah, I have locks. Just worried they'll tear them off. When I used a goal post hitch rack, I stored it under the cap. Now I can't give that damn thing away.
I have used yakima bars since the early 80’s. I am too deep in add-ons to even consider other types. I have used the rails on many vehicles with success even though Yak says they won’t fit. Sometimes I had to take the rail mounts apart and then install them but it works. Looking at your Suburu I’m not sure most would fit. Next time I see an Outback I will pay more attention. I have used the same set of Yak rail mounts on a BMW wagon, three 4Runners, Sequoia, Suburban and Acura wagon. I use the 78” bars and I have some that are shorter from removing the rusty ends. I have locks but seldom use them. Happy trails
