What's the proper way to tie down a hiking strap...

Thread starter #1
I have two strap eyes on the fore and aft end of the cockpit. I simply did a bowline knot on each end of the hiking strap to the strap eye, but I wanted to make sure what people normally do.

I use a square (reef) know with an extra half hitch on each side of the knot. Be sure the knot is tight or you will end up in the drink if the knot slips.
