another tip is to use multiple straps and put some stringers on the deck along the edge to take the pressure of the straps. This helps to displace the pressure evenly across the deck so that you do not get the ripple effect where the straps are placed.

As anytime you clamp something, evenly distributing the pressure is key. I used some pine scraps that were left over from the sheerclamps and laid them out just out side the straps. then started to tighten up as I went along.
