Yeah that 'ill happen about once. "Excuse me, I need to take my table home to sleep on it". Then someone wakes you up so they can make breakfast on it.
Do yourself a favor and be sure not to utilize your table for any planned sleeping arrangements.
I have plywood decking on my side rails, as well as over the front bay of four. About ten lbs worth of 2x4 scraps go up on edge and shim the sides and front up even with the dry box and cooler. one extra piece of ply to cover the foot well and all of a sudden you've got a 6'x8' platform. It floats fine rigged up high, as long as there is no wind.
The mega mid on a pair of oars is GENIUS. I've always written them off due to the post in the middle. Might have to get one those, lor the go lite version...
I only rigged it like this once, and neglected to take a picture.
Be sure to rig a tether for your pillow and some leashes on the corners of your sleeping bags so you don't lose it in the wind.
