Cooler and dry box placement
I am about to go on my first overnight trip with the raft. I guess I haven't paid enough attention when on my buddies' boats, but what is the general consensus on how to put a cooler and dry box into the frame?
I have a Yeti 125 and so it is roughly 20" tall, I have on land a 12" drop from frame to floor, the "rim tab" around the Yeti sits at roughly 15 1/2". So it seems I cannot rest the yet on that rim (if that is even something you are supposed to do) so do I just adjust my frame so the yeti is held by friction at a point above my floor? It will be a seat for 1-2 people, will it warped or dented the yeti this way?
Also if one were to have a dry box without tabs how are people elevating it off the floor? Drop bags? I don't really like the look of the NRS slings.
Do people put coolers and dry boxes in drop bags or is there another method?
