I'm assuming you've got all surfaces and edges epoxied at this point, and your hatch covers have been shaped to the same radius as your decks.
If you are only going for a day or two and will NOT be in extreme water, maybe duct tape - where residual glue can be softened and removed with thinner? Get some more thoughts on this though. I'm not real comfortable here.
As Steve mentioned with drill fill drill you could install your straps now and remove them after your paddle for final finishing and varnish. Just stay away from silicon for now.
You may have a little more work than you'd planned here, but it won't be wasted.
