More About Straps
- When attaching straps:
- Avoid bungee cords or other elastic cords that may let the boat shift when driving at highway speeds.
- Use proper tie-downs or nonslip knots.
- If you mount a boat upright, place a cushioning material between the straps and the gunwales or coaming to prevent abrasion.
- When transporting a boat or board over a long distance, stop periodically to examine the straps and re-tie them if they have loosened.
