Our new place has a garage, so I'm planning on transporting my Ches 16 from my dad's woodshop to my garage so that I can work on it over the winter. I don't have the hatch straps installed yet, and I'm wondering if its safe to transport without the hatches in place. Will the wind-buffeting be an issue with those open space on deck? I usually transport my kayaks hull-down...
I'll definitely be installing bow and stern hand-holds before transportation, so that I'll have something to tie my end-straps to.
Am I worrying over nothing here?
