If you have multiple sets of straps, use a bunch of them, the more the better, and "leapfrog" them from the cockpit forward. In other words once you're done nailing the furthest section back, move that strap forward past the others, and so on. Like Allan said, there are stresses, so go gently with the straps, tightening each one a little bit till you get them snug. 4mm Okoume is flexible stuff...to a point.
