Scott, as far as what I took, I am way more used to raft and car camping than self support or backpack style camping, so packing light is a challenge for me.
My sleeping pad and bag went in their own small dry bags up front, along with a liter or two of water. I’d like to get more up there to even out the load a bit, but only very small items can squeeze past the foot brace.
In the stern I use 2 stow floats stuffed pretty full: One side was light clothing layers and a nylon tarp, that I used as a ground cloth, but could have rigged between some trees with a rope and stakes if it had rained.
the other side was food and a jet boil stove. I brought an aluminum pan to use a small fire pan, as well as 2 wag bags.
Ian, I hadn't thought about submitting it elsewhere, but maybe i will. Then I'd have to use all correct verb tenses and stuff. Not sure I am up to the challenge
