In reply to MCIMES....

That was the same problem I had with the four block kit. I was wondering if having the gunwales sunk deeper in the foam blocks would actually reduce the ability of the canoe to pivot off the foam block (like you suggested). I will also try your suggestion of a 3rd strap. I was only using 2.

I had the canoe strapped down TIGHT. But I live in a place that gets very strong winds. It sounds like from the suggestions I should be able to make it work.
