From your WW video you put up yesterday, it looks like your frame is bombproof with double rails and captains boxes. For me, this cooler is going in a basic NRS Bighorn frame on a daytrip boat that's got a little flex. Likelihood of a crap-out are a little higher... at least in my head. Plus I've been using dropbags on my cat since I started. The wife and usual passengers are familiar with rigging those properly. I guess it's one of those "stick with what you know" moments.
Note - I did try the strap method, and quickly saw the potential for disaster. The first time the 25 lb dog hopped on top, the cooler flopped enough that she ended up in my lap. I pulled the straps, and just ran the rest of the day with it resting on the floor.
