Crate refresh: tie-down anchor

When strapping down the fishing crate into the stern well of the kayak, I used to just run the bungees over the top, then had to deal with them being in the way when accessing items stored in the crate.  I decided that there was certainly someway for me to manage the tie-downs so that they’d hold the crate steady yet be out of the way.

On a recent trip to the hardware store, I located some J bolts that I thought would fit the bill.  I drilled holes in all top corners and on all sides.  With all of these holes, along with the wing nuts I used, I can then reconfigure the anchor locations without tools should I choose to change the orientation of the crate in the well.
