Cargo nets are great for lots of different loads and types/and shape of gear we carry because they are strong/secure and VERY adaptable...(the reason I prefer heavy gauge elasticated)...you can always get items in and out of often without have to un clip the entire load.
But for static ANGULAR permanent fixtures (which are much more likely to slide about)
I'd recommend you go for made to measure Stainless Straps...bolted with dome boots to the deck...or decent stainless ratchet straps and well secured "Padeyes" every time

this is what i have which also gives a permanent fix for my anchor bucket to be pulled back against with ss barrel adjusters which fasten to the cargo rail on my SIB floor.

Or if it's an air floor sib glue on several loops and secure to those with rope/bungee/strap as appropriate.

Something like these or the loop version rather than D-ring.

PVC d-ring patch

PVC Small D-ring/Tow Ring with 4.5" Pad for Inflatable Boats & Rafts, Single D-Ring, White, Gray, Black or Red

Looooong time lurker, first time poster. I did the above: glued down some D ring patches - but to my tubes vs. floor. Just works with the arrangement I have. Used straps to hold everything tight. NOTE: I have 1/100th the experience of other people on here! Please take that into account.
