Ha, figured it was at least difficult, if not highly improbable!

I assumed that it was in fact heavy and top-loaded, right? I mean why stack stuff on top unless the innards are already full?

If minnesotamaximus would be so kind to post a trip report, I'd be stoked. Two layovers sound great, they must've made good time on the water?

BTW, those new-fangled gigantic boats look amazing - hope we get one somewhere close-by to try out. Thanks.

If the boat is loaded as well inside then the center of gravity is probably still lower in the boat. It would then roll similar to a WW boat full of water and go over fine just a little slower/awkward. Usually people aren't going to load actually heavy items on the deck....

If you pack it right, it'll practically right itself. With a deck bag, groover, and paddle on top that's hardly top-heavy. You just place your heavy stuff along the centerline and at the bottom and it's pretty easy.

Now I speak of a touring boat and not a crossover. The touring had much more of a keel and centerline than crossover boats.

My poop tube would be sorta heavy after 14 days, but I get the idea.

Has anyone drilled holes in a creeker/downriver kayak deck to mount the bungies? Any advice with that? I just never considered that as an option until these pics were posted. Thanks.
