One could, in search of advice, read this article!

But then, IMO, one would be tying the rear strap incorrectly.

The attachment point on the canoe should always be further forward than the attachment point on the vehicle. Otherwise you are relying on friction to restrain your boat in case of hard breaking or, god forbid, a collision.

I don't worry about this because I tie the canoe thwarts to the rack bars at both ends so that if I have to stop suddenly, the canoe will not slide either forward or backward!

I always thought straps over the belly should take care of the canoe sliding forwards/backwards.
