Table for raft bench

Any reason why this won't work to cover a drop bag bay? Would prefer not to spend hundreds of dollars on a table, cause it's a table.

Thanks,

Kevin

Just don't cook on it, stoves can get to hot for plastic

I've used one for a couple years. Currently replacing it with a custom built one. That said I would just place my partner stove on a couple of ammo can lids and it seemed to be okay.

I've seen one in use on the river with a little hole or 2 in the plastic (molding defect?) that filled with water and got really heavy. Otherwise they are just heavy.

Are you looking for a table for sitting around or for prepping and cooking on. Prepping and cooking on a low table makes for a sore back.

You have a 30 inch bay to cover and your boat is at least 8 feet wide?

I use my river counters off the river a far amount. Great height for chop saw or a platform for other projects. They are very durable and with very modest care they should last a lifetime.

I am looking for a bay cover by day, prep/cook table by night. My bays are modular at this point. I think I linked the 96" version, but there is a 30x72" version for my raft

I added legs to my front deck. Just took some had inch pipe, the straps I use to attach to the frame and some long straps to hold the legs together. It's been working well on my 2 overnighters this summer. Didn't want to buy a table and add one more thing to carry on the boat. Legs detach and I just lay them flat in the bottom of the drop bag under the deck.

How do you attach legs to table? Mind posting a pic of the side and bottom view?

The yellow straps that show on the top of the table attach the legs. I just run the straps through the holes in the deck and over the crossbar of the legs. When I get home today I'll take a pic of the legs by themselves. The yellow straps and the holes are how I attach the deck to the frame.
