Question Transom Tie Down Straps

I was curious as to what people are using for tie down straps on their MasterCrafts. The attachment eye on the boat and trailer are positioned to the inside of the swim platform bracket and with such a small distance between the platform and the transom of the boat, it looks like the only way that I could get a transom strap hook in there is to remove the swim platform everytime I strap it down. As a result, I have not been using straps. However, it makes me nervous to not strap down the transom on a longer trip. Also, how do you protect the transom of your boat from the straps and hook rubbing on the gelcoat and leaving a mark? By the way my boat is a 1999 Prostar 205 and the trailer is a DHM with a boat buddy loading system.
