Maybe if you rack the kayak on its side you could open the galley hatch enough.  Shorter kayaks are no problem; we mount one of our Wood Ducks on the roof racks for display at show, with the galley hatch open all the way.  But you’ll likely need to slack the aft tie-down strap on a 17-footer for full headroom under the open galley hatch.
