Sweet,
I have an Old Town Pack that is 12' and here are some mods I have made that have realy helped keep stuff secure and out of the way and to help anchor the boat.

Good luck with outfitting your boat.

They have worked out great! I leave the paddles in the boat 24/7 even with the boat upside down on long hwy trips. I never forget the paddles and on portages and put ins, they don't slide all over and out of the boat.
