Thanks Alex,
I use flip lines attatched to carabiners when floating, just remove them for drive home. One less thing flapping around on the boat.
The bar at base of Bimini is a sliding track that I picked up from River Sombrero two seasons ago. When the Bimini goes up I slide it all the way forward for passenger shade and when it comes down I slide it all the way back and it rest on rear tube. I also strap it down with a single strap to rear d-ring when going through rapids.
I'm going to re-visit captains boxes this winter. I am happy w/ frame set up so permanent set up w box's won't be an issue.
I have a 42"x21" drop bag under front bench w farmtec decking in the bottom as you do and I keep my stove, k-pump,(note, all ammo cans are turned on end to decrease surface area) hand washing ammo can, first aid ammo can, repair ammo, grooved accessories ammo, kids kite, which rocks on long flat water sections, and water jug. I have the large square blue 5 gallons w white valve at bottom. All the ammo cans mentioned above are the medium ? Cans. I ended up with one large ammo can for groover which goes in upright position on poly deck at bottom of everything bag. (Another great Alex suggestion)

Yes, I was looking at that sliding bar for my bimini, I might do the same as well. I know exactly what you are talking about and the need for it. My cheapo solution was quick release hinges.

I think this winter project is going to make more custom aluminum shelves for smaller spaces around dry boxes and such. Similar to this:



Right now, I have my small ammo cans in that bracket with a strap over them to the right of my cooler.

You can see it here on the left of the picture:

Nice idea w ammo can bracket.. looks tight!
Notice you have a couple water bottles in your rig, I picked up an MSR gravity filter from Amazon Amazon.com: Autoflow Gravity Hydration Microfilter: Sports & Outdoors before last Ladore trip and it worked great. I liked not having to carry lots of water and being able to back flow this pump to remove large sediment kept it going the whole trip. Red creek had run from a rainstorm coloring the whole river brown for 2 days and the pump continued to filter the water with a little maintenance. Just a thought, if you don't have a pump already.

I have a hand filter that I use for backpacking. I've carried it with me everywhere, but never really used it. With all the water we bring from home, we never seemed to run out.

NRS E160

Here's mine...
4 bay frame
1st bay, drop bag with splash gear, pump, etc
2nd bay, rocket boxes(4) and propane cylinder secured in bracket
3rd bay, footwell w/ 2 rocket boxes for captains boxes (cooler/patch kit)
4th bay, cooler with captain's seat

bay 1 and 2 are covered with expanded metal benches/tables and covered with paco pads for large passenger area

front-day cooler secured in place w/ crossbar that's a great place for holding small stuff the passengers want to get to easily (snacks, sunscreen, etc.)

back-everything bag

Also have ladder to get passengers into boat easily. Used old ladder rungs held together with flat webbing. Bottom rung is stuffed with closed cell foam so it floats.

Setup seems to work very well and all stays low and secure. However, always ready to grab good ideas from others and make changes.

A picture from my first rafting trip with a 13' Saturn (...haterz gonna hate...). Had some issues with the height of the captain's chair so I ditched it. Can't see too much of the rigging because of all the crap that ended up on top, but I liked the king-sling for keeping things in place in the rear.

Is this a 16 or 18' boat? It makes those (4"?) pacos look like toys
