Thule or yakima?

Time to get a rack for my '98 Accord. I would like feedback on the Thule and Yakima racks regarding strength, minimizing damage to the car, and wind noise. I have a Pygmy Coho and was thinking about using the foam crossbar pads on these racks as my travel time to the water is pretty short - one to two miles. The kayak saddles or rollers seem like expensive overkill. Anyone had a positive or negative experience? Thank you.
