What!?! No dry box?!?

Yup, at least that's what I'm thinking. I have the Big Horn 2 NRS frame and want to shake off the back box. I currently have a 123qt cooler under my seat that I use for a dry box with the ammo cans for captains boxes and storage behind. I am thinking of putting my seat back on a bar and putting my dry box stuff into a Andy and Bax Barney Bag. This should open up lots more storage under my seat and around in the back. The thing tripping me up is propane tank and dry/crushable foods. My front cooler is 123 as well, maybe the food can fit in there. Whatddya think? Shoot my crazy idea full of holes.

What about adding a rocket on either side of your feet for dry crushable food? And as the bread gets eaten, you get captains boxes. As to propane, 20lb cylinder fits on its side in one of the rectangle milk crates. Strap it in and keep it on the floor behind the "drybox"?

I put dry crushable foods in a 5gal bucket with a gamma seal lid.

I would recommend adding a floor in the rower's bay. You can strap rocket boxes to the floor. One each side. Not sure about the space behind your front cooler bay. You could possibly extend the floor to the front bay and strap even more gear. Possibly the propane tank.

I like the idea of a floor and how easy it would be to strap stuff down. My main concern is that I switch out my set up for a rear frame several times a year. Maybe some of that kennel flooring I saw in a different thread wouldn't be too much work.

What I ultimately want to do is lower my seat. I love the comfort but right now it feels way too high. I could go smaller dry box but then my stove etc won't fit. Hmmmm


Relax, all right? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools. I can fix it.

Harmony barrels are a great alternative or addition to a dry box. Much better seal than a gamma lid and a more packable shape so they work well in drop bags or gear piles or....... They're also critter resistant and provide protection on and off the boat for stuff that needs it.

I put rocket boxes on the floor in my captains bay of my NRS E-140. I made the floor with skidguard and hang it from the frame with 3ft straps. It is easy to remove when not needed.

Yep, you're right. You can enter a whole new realm on floor discussions. Good luck. I've also heard it said, "buy an NRS adjustable frame and mess with it the rest of your life."
