He'll be doing whitewater eventually. Posted by: guideboatguy on Nov-13-12 10:16 PM (EST)
My guess is that he wants to tie his gear into the boat. He needs at least two D-rings or SOME kind of anchor points on the floor at the fat end of each float bag anyway. Might as well add a few more to tie down packs. I have two sets of four D-rings on the floor of two of my boats, and I can't tell you how handy that is to keep stuff in place. Tied-down packs add quite a lot of flotation if the boat is swamped too.
