Drop bag sizing?

Looking to buy a drop bag for my NRS Otter 140. There is 13" from the top of my floor to the top of the frame and ruffly 43" inside the tubes. Although a staff member at NRS said there should be 45" inside the tubes. The drop bag will be used under a NRS campsite counter to hold gear, not to hold a cooler/dry box. Are the drop bags adjustable in depth by an inch or two? Right now I am looking at the DRE 44" x 18" x 9", and the AAA 44" x 19" x 11".

Thanks

I have this one on my NRS E-140. I too use the camp table as the cover. https://shop.clavey.com/drop-bag---x...-x-44-p51.aspx

looks like our boats have the same measurements. That 14" deep bag doesn't touch your floor?

We like having the fabric depth at 9" and then using the straps to adjust down if needed. If you tend to put miscellaneous gear of varying weights and varying densities, the bottoms of the drop bags can sag a few inches or more. Don't hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance.

I would call Jason at Wet Dreams in Flagstaff. He will make what ever size your looking for with bomber material. He did mine with tapered sides to hug the tubes. It's really sweet!

We custom make every single one of our drop bags to fit each boat and frame.

BTW, does anyone out there who has a Tuff River Stuff drop bag happen to have any pictures of it? We always seem to forget to take a picture of any we make before they ship...

I'll have to measure when I get home. I don't remember the dimensions exactly but was custom built per dimensions I gave them. I made a rookie mistake though and didn't account for the floor raising when on water, so while I looks perfect in my garage floor, it does touch my floor when in the water. I'll see if I can get those dimensions later for you.
