Not only will the extra lines give added security the bow line ,in the case of larger SUV and canopied pickups, will let you see that your Yak is still attached!
Maybe I just worry more than others but every time a big gust of wind rattles the vehicle or I pass a big Semi and the road tubulence blast the works I feel compeled to look like mad in all the mirrors and windows (really distracted here) to see if I can spot a loose boat flying through the air. The addition of the bow line works as a tattle tail and you never have to give the boat on the roof another thought unless the line leaves your sight.
Its the little things that make life less stressful if they were all written down somewhere, wait a minute thats what the www is for!
