Removing the air deck does not require to deflate the boat. But removing the alu floor does.

Is this a good idea or is the boat too big?

Turn it upside down. Better airflow.

Traffic cops will have a field day sticking you on for carrying an unsafe load with this set up!
Unless you are travelling sub 5 miles and sub 40 mph you are going to come a cropper with the coppers with this load.

If it's secure and not going to come off surely it isn't unsafe ?
I think I'd try it other way up as suggested but other than that if it's well secured I don't see what you could be "done" for

Yes, it's probably better. Note taken.

You say that because the boat is too big? From my interpretation of the code I am not breaking any rules. The safety part is always debatable. If the boat is indeed properly strapped, it won't go anywhere. How can they prove the opposite?

BTW, my current idea is to turn the boat upside down, put two straps on the middle section, another strap from the front handle and rings to the car tow eye and a fourth strap on the front rings to the car rack.

As your Sib is depicted in this thread there is too much of an overhang above the top of front the door pillars.
There will be too much airflow coming up from your windscreen at anything above 40 mph for it to be deemed safe.
In the UK if the Sib flexed / wobbled in transit you would be charged and it would be up to you to prove that the load was safe!
Remember most roofs are only rated to take 75 ish kg.
With the upward force generated at speed combined with the Sib weight you will easily exceed this weight / stress.
Courts and coppers here love fixed penalty tickets for traffic violations!
You would be cannon fodder with that set up.
Trust me............. I know.

Well, either you're a police officer or it happened to you.

So you're saying I shouldn't transport my sib on the roof top at all or that I should consider another setup?
