Default Trailering boat help

I have a 17ft Bass Tracker v Hull. I had to get another trailer due to the other one rusting out. I have a situation hopefully someone can help with.
When i am putting my boat on the trailer i winch it up tight of course. As soon as i start to pull the truck up the boat moves back an inch or two out of the boot. Have to then back it back down and winch again. I am winching it as tight as possible but the boat still manages to slide back. Very embarrasing having to tie up ramp. I haven't noticed any difference at the steeper versus flatter ramps.
Any assistance greatly appreciated.

it shouldnt move any farther back than you have it pulled up. your winch strap must be slipping inside.

my thoughts to unwarp the strap and make sure it is attached to the hold bolt . then attach hook to a non moving anchor and wrap till it is completely tight and you can no longer move handle
