Did a bit of searching, so forgive me if there's a good thread on this that I missed.

This is my first summer with my own two Tomcat Tributary Tandem inflatable kayaks. I did find a thread earlier about carts to use, and tried to give it a bump, but didn't see much play.

Am also wondering if anyone uses bags to store/travel/storage their IKs in? I saw that Aire has this one and NRS has this one.

For now, I've been wrapping a long cam strap around the duckie twice and using that as "handles" to cart it towards the water. Certainly seems like a backpack setup of some sort would be nice. And the cart would be nice if I was to just play at, say, the Union chutes or something, especially if one folded up decently in the ducky.

[I'm using every spelling variation I can think of to "call" my boat right now, so that this comes up in search threads for others. I don't think duckies necessarily need their own forum, it's just hard to do a search!]

Thoughts on bags or carts?

Personally I use large mesh laundry bags that I got from the hospital for my IK's.

I clean and dry my IK's after each use, then roll them up and stuff them in the mesh bag. then on a shelf in the garage they go. for packing them I rig straps up like a yukon pack. then on my back they go to the putin. straps can be used for other purposes or stuffed in a sack in the ducky.

For storage
duck duck go search for duffel bags.
lots of sizes out there, most pretty cheap and protects the IK from abrasion
or
buy the Aire or NRS storage bags for IK storage for a lot more money

I think it was Jack at JPW who mentioned that most raft and IK damage happens in transport or storage.

For moving the IK from vehicle to water, I just carry my IK either by the sides or sometimes position it over my back and head similar to a canoe portage.
