Like I said before- maybe I still need to learn to roll my 14' RMR better, but I doubt I could even get it in a 55 gallon barrel. But if I could, boy that would be sweet. Imagine just rolling the raft around in a barrel instead of heaving around a giant pile of folded rubber. I am also going to look into the giant trashcan idea, preferably one with wheels for the same reason.
As far as all of this "poverty boat" talk goes, I would consider Maravias Hysides and Aires to be the poverty boats... if I bought one of those I would be impoverished!
