On the back did the same thing, but ran the lashing behind the rudder cable.
Nothing real secure like I had to do on my canoe, but I don't see any way they can really go anywhere unless the boat came completely apart. For the front bags to come out, the center pillar would have to go with them, and for the rear, the rudder cable and hatch cover would have to bail.......I figured if all of that happened I'd have way bigger problems than losing $80 worth of bags
I've also read where people used rope or nylon zip ties and attached the outter rear corners of the bow bags to the footpeg rails, but I don't really see much need to do so. Could use PVC D-ring glue-on patches like NRS sells to secure the front bag rings, I used glue-on D-ring patches on all the corners for my canoe bags, but again, for this boat I really don't see needing it.
I'll try to get some pictures of my set up tonight.
