How to mount dry box/cooler in cataraft
I plan to get a cataraft for all-around use, say a 14-foot Ocelot or Wave Destroyer. The question is how to mount the dry box for longer trips. Both boats have 22-inch tubes, and the frame could drop about 8-inches at most. If it the box is mounted so that the bottom of the box is even with the bottom frame tubes, then the box stands tall, and since I would be sitting on the box, I would be sitting tall. If the box hangs from the cross-bars like on a round boat, then the bottom of the box hangs below the raft frame, which makes me nervous about hitting something. What are people's thoughts about mounting a dry box or cooler? Sit tall or drag low?
