...is usually done when there are two or more to consider. The main reason is simply to make more space available. It's really important to use foam blocks or some other alterative cushioning support to ensure that the boat doesn't get any structural damage during transport. Also, take care not to bind the kayak too tightly or you could cause micro-cracks in the epoxy. You know you have it tight enough when you jiggle the boat and the car moves, too. Currently, I use bungie cords, two cords tied separately at each end for security. For short highway drives I use the bow line and for longer highway trips I secure the stern as well. All it takes is one good gust to knock the boat askew.
