The straps were side to side tight against the bottom. Most of our class V paddle boats were Lexatron Sotars with drop stitch floors. The idea was to get to the end of the boat, boost yourself up on the handle and have the strap to grab and get up on the bottom. Once there you could grab a throwbag from shore or, if you still had your paddle, attempt to paddle to shore. It was pretty rare to try and reflip a boat midstream, the Zambezi being the exception.

Lateral Strap: Has been on the boat for 4 to 5 years. Never had an issue

I also made a monkeyfist strap, I like the idea (like tag lines).

Lastly, threaded a 4Ft Strap, down, skip, up, down, skip, up, back to buckle. I think this is least effective, as it would be hard to find in a flip situation, and may cause the floor to drain more slowly.
