I just purchased a Liquid Logic Stinger XP. I am going to use it as a true crossover, WW up to class 4, rock gardening and as a general use boat. The seating/back band are perfect, and easily adjusted for proper snug fit. I have installed a bulkhead in the stern to make it a water tight storage space, and air bags in the front for flotation.
One thing the boat is really lacking is deck rigging, no perimeter lines or bungee lines. I realize that most WW boats do not have deck rigging as they often do not carry spare paddles or pumps on the deck; nor is wet entry a major concern.
I have a pretty specialized fleet and I am trying to build a general use boat for use when I travel, to keep in my work trailer as my "work site" boat to cut down on shipping boats all over the USA.
Is the lack of deck rigging in regard to a safety concern like getting caught up in deck rigging? I would like to keep a spare paddle and a pump on the stern deck, and possibly a small deck bag on the front.
Am I missing something before I install deck rigging?
