Hold her steady

Today the engines are being mounted. In preparation for this operation, the ship is secured to prevent roll -- this system is good for field work in light winds up to about 10 knots.

In the picture, hold her steady, the attach point that is being used along with the tow bar on the rear landing gear, could that combination of attach points be used for ground handling and increase the allowable cross wind frome the current 7kts to say 12kts?

The bar is attached to the rear of the truck in this picture, but we also have an attachment point on the side of the truck so that when we drive the ship into the hangar, you have the mast truck at the nose, and the pickup truck driving parallel to the ship at the rear.
