with my extremely limited experience with these kits, I'd say - lots of straps. You might also want to consider the working length of the tie-down straps you use.
I had three 2" wide straps that were just a tad too long (say 15 or 20 ft) for the job. When the strap was just about to tighten up on the deck/hull the excess strap would bunch up on the ratchet mechanism making it difficult to release the pressure when I needed to reposition it.
I guess six straps would hold you over well for this job.
Preparation (and then some) is key here.
