Thanks. Yep, that's a lot of gear. Do you remember how wide that raft was?

I think it was 6'6" wide,the blue hyside in the pic is a 14' and 7' wide and with about the same load it floated so much higher,i think its a good pic to compare how close in size they look but how much better the bigger boat floated

Hey Brandon,

Here are some pics I found of my floor. The Green Cans are used for Captain's boxes. The ones in front are optional. I like to keep my Major First Aid kit there if I'm packin' it. The Captain's boxes are a little tight to get into when going down river but manageable. The foot space is more than adequate. All boxes have hard wood around the base to keep them from shifting. I have purchased covers that I really like. I believe I got those from Riverworks. Found them on this forum.The boxes are strapped to the floor by the handles. If I'm hitting big stuff I run a strap through the latches and around the cans in case of flips. The floor has been drilled out around 1/2 inch holes every inch or so. That caused the loss of integrity and was the reason it cracked in the Canyon. The holes allow water out and add to the grip of the floor. I'm still using it for now.

On the Lower Salmon a few weeks ago, staying on the water to avoid the Yellowjackets!

Our new E-160, hastily rigged for the trip (picked it up while driving through Moscow). The Action Packer will get replaced with an aluminum box next year, the lid is deformed from getting stepped on and strapped down too much. The DRE cargo net on the back makes a great no-tangle sleeping platform for tired kids.

I did learn that I now need 11' oars with the 10" towers and cooler for a seat. It was a bit hard reaching the water sometimes.

I've got a few 'interface' problems between the NRS Campsite Counter (under the blue mat) and the NRS Side Rail Racks. They're each sharing 1/2 a frame cross bar each. Plenty sturdy, except when someone is pulling on the end of the side rail rack to get back in the raft after a swim.

First pic is MFS and second is lower salmon with the kiddo taking over. Had to upgrade the water jugs. Not a fan of the big blocky blue jugs
