I use roll-a-table type tables, but have had a bench table. Usually the bench table stayed on the boat in favor of the roll-a-tables.

Easily strapped in around the girth of the barrel and cargo net. What is this flip you speak of?

I must not be seeing the cargo net in the picture. I just see the strap going to the handles. I didn't read where you were running this setup, but /if/ it was someplace that would find that rig flipped, that's a lot of exposure it would seem.

Then again, the milk crate and takle boxes would probable be the first to go

Here's a few pics of my set-up. Two dry boxes & a cooler. Others in my group have the counter height tables. We also bring roll-a-tables for lunch, extra table space, and the all important canasta tournament.

Was on the Yampa and wasn't too worried about flipping the 18 footer at 5000 cfs. There is certainly a battened down mode and flatwater mode where the crates and boxes are packed away.

I carry a big-a$$ counter height table as the seat in the front bay, and a fold away table that can be used at either appetizer/cocktail height and taller (TravelChair Grand Canyon Table). The picture below is of my rig before A LOT of tweaks.
  • The table is now Al topped vs. poly
  • There are a lot more slots in the diamond plate side boards for strapping
  • The captains cooler has been replaced with a second captains box
  • The table, cooler and drybox now all have pads/foam for added insulation.
  • I also don't run the side boards loaded the way they are shown here anymore. The kitchen box is now in my drop bag and replaced with a group 1st aid kit on the side rail & water bricks are distributed a little more.

I use a template for all the cut outs and a 2" hole saw for the radius.



I use 1/4 nut inserts to attach the boards to the frame.

To align every thing I make a bunch of sharpened 1/4 studs, screw them in then place the board where I want it and tap it with a rubber mallet.
