Ducky Self Support

What would be a good way to secure gear. I'm using a two person ducky and like to go out with my dog and some gear. Is there some bomber product to tie it all down?

Aire's have small loops running along both sides of the floor (between side tube and floor) -- very convenient for strapping stuff down.
If no loops, you can use the drain holes to create your own loops -- run a strap in one hole and out an adjacent hole.
I suppose you can just use straps through the holes, but I usually do the create your own loops thing. When not in use, be sure the loop is tight - you don't want it hanging out the bottom in the water to catch on something -- when in use, it will be pulled tight.

So do you use a cargo net or just tie each item down separately?

Pulling straps through the loops on Aire IKs can cause wear on the loops. I added small quick links to my loops and run the straps through those. Another solution is to glue small d-rings low on the inside of the tubes.

What kind of IK do you have? I have 2 Tributarys and they have fabric loops the whole length of the boat. I put carabiners in the loops I'm going to use and use normal rafting style straps. The carabiners eliminate the wear on the loops.

Have some custom length daisy chains sewn and run them thru the d-rings or loops from bow to stern.
