Default Transporting a kayak on roof

So my girlfriend & I have kayaks that we want to take camping with us. I got a pair of new fold-down J-style roof carriers for them. However she has a Pelican sit-on kayak and the seat back doesn't come off like mine does. We will be driving 2hrs on the highway & I don't want her seat back getting bent beyond repair or ripped off. Should I use a strap to keep the seat back "folded" down, load the kayak so it faces backwards, both, or is it not even an issue?

I believe I saw you post this on another forum OR maybe I was already a member of this forum and forgot (could be I have two log in, s?). I am also looking for a suitable car top rack and like you, have questions regarding seats. I think I would probably load it upside down provided the seat back folds. This would provide a better weight distribution

still looking at transport options although I have as yet to purchase a kayak. (looking at NUCANOE and Perception Pescador pro 10.0) I saw a few roof top carriers on etrailer.com and I believe that the INNO is best bang for the buck at $335. They also have a load assist to permit side loading consisting of an "arm" that folds out to help pre-position your boat when loading solo. The Pescador has a removable seat as well.
