"You should always use 2 straps on the bow and at least 2 on the stern, forming an upside down V from the ends of the boat to the outside edges of the bumper. This will keep the boat from moving sideways in a crosswind. "

Wow, had not thought of that, easy enough to pick up more straps but eventually, for shorter trips, I might eventually spend more time on boat security on the rack than I do in the water.

So far I have not had sideways movement but have had some rotation on the boat's "axis", I need to think through the best solutions, the saddles I have seem to do little to prevent it. What the hull needs is trunnions like on a muzzle loading cannon.
