I've started integrating these Velcro ties near the cams to quickly bundle up excess strap. Fluttering straps quickly deteriorate.

McGinnis wouldn't let us use cam straps on anything. Hoopie and trucker's hitches for everything!

Regarding trailers, I can't believe nobody has mentioned the bow line yet. No matter how you strap the stack, the top boat's bow line comes to trailer tongue and gets cranked down with a trucker's hitch.

I put stick on Velcro strips on the bottom of my floor so it just sticks to the carpet. No need for tying down for me.
