Loading C-Tug

Any tips for loading a 15’ kayak on a C-Tug, so as to get the C-Tug as close to the cockpit as possible? Slide the C-Tug under from the stern? Or set the kayak next to the C-Tug, lift it up, and set it on the C-Tug?

I use the lift up method.
I set the C tug at an angle just behind the cockpit and lift the stern and set it on the cart. As I get more experience I get better with it.

Do you use the stand for that?
I bought mine used and it didn’t have a stand but I made one using a plastic pipe. Do you angle the C-Tug down toward the bow or the stern?
