Test fit a Sumo 1000 lb ballast bag on transom deck tonight, with air. See pics below Hope to get to the lake, but weather looks kinda crappy in ohio this weekend.

Trying decide how to keep it from falling/rolling back. It’s 50x22x22... bulging it should be 1000 lbs.
I’ve looked at cargo netting and also considering making my own 4” wide nylon straps. Just not what is the best part to tie it to going forward. I honestly wish this boat had slide out cleats on top of the transom seat tops. Could I install my own anchor points there? Strong enough or too thin and risk really damaging it?
Was playing around with rope as an option too. Not sure how much load those stern handles can hold either?191D80CA-1D53-4969-BE68-CAA674511F5C.jpeg0100B7EF-89EE-4707-9285-7142CA29E7EA.jpeg1308569F-5E90-4920-9C22-3E099110595B.jpegDF126829-7478-42F2-A0CD-904ED7C3DB1D.jpeg

I would tie to the tower and not the grab handles. Did you try just tying to the ski handle and then up instead of going around the bag?
