Dagger Mamba help

I was wondering if anyone one had some tips for putting gear in the bow of the mamba for overnight trips. It seems to me like its going to be a pain with the center pillar.

Do you not have enough room in the back? What year is your mamba? It should be easy to take the center pillar out and remove the bulkhead, it might take 10-15 minutes to take apart and put back together.

Its the 8.6 with a creek seat. Im going on a 3 night trip in june and wanted to put some stuff in the bow to balance the boat out a bit. My stern has plenty of room but I dont want to put everything back there. Mamba like to stern squirt empty.

Stuff the bow with loose things that can get wet. If you pull the bulkhead as far out as it'll go, there should be plenty of space between the bulkhead and the hull to stuff freeze-dried meals, fuel canisters, ground cloth, canned food, vegetables, etc. up there. The best way to balance the load is just move the seat all the way forward. It'll also make stern access easier.

I have paddled the mamba loaded with 10 days of gear all in the back and it handles great, I'm not the biggest fan of gear up front it really messed up my boofing potential.
