Space Between NRS Otter 15' Floor and Cooler Bottom?

I searched...

I'm changing the rigging on my 15' NRS Otter with Bighorn II frame.

How much space should I leave between the raft floor and the gear suspended from the frame (cooler, drybox, water jugs, drop bag with ammo cans etc)?

I'm looking for the measurement of space with the boat on the floor in the garage (knowing the floor rides higher when on the water).

I would guess that the best way to determine this, would be to put your raft on the water and measure the distance from the frame to the floor, then compare that to the distance while on your garage floor.

I have a 156R.The only floor is is in the tralor frame.My cooler & dry boxes hang 10" below the frame.The dry boxes still leave black marks on the floor.The floor in Aire rafts are fine to stand on without a hard floor so I don't have to worry about rocks damaging the floor as much.If you want a scouting floor you can hold it higher up than the cooler & boxes.Just leave room for the knees.
