Raft Porn Needed -Let's see them rigs!!!
 
I'm putting together a new boat and need all the ideas for rigging I can get. So, do me a favor and post tons of photos and descriptions of how you roll. Tell me what works, what doesn't, and anything you'd do differently.

Thanks!

I got it from western marine. It is a telescoping 4 rung boat ladder. Just google it. It cost about 89.00. Just attach with clevis pin and a hitch pin. It falls a good two feet below the raft, makes getting into the boat a breeze.

I have a 4 bay frame. In the second bay from the front I had 5 rocket boxes. I got tired of busting my knuckles and toes lifting them out so I just got a huge dry box to take that space. Although, I did like the flat deck I had. I think I will like the ease of the dry box. I row off the cooler with a small paco pad that I got from holiday river exp. They use them for the guests. It never comes off the cooler, for sun protection with a wet towel under it. A captain box is so much better than a rocket box. Because you don't have to undo it to get inside. They are costly though. I like to keep a small cooler in the cockpit that you can keep lunch and drink stuff in.

The front bay has a drop bag with a table top. I like my everything bag in the rear. I think it is more secure than a net carabener'd to the D-rings. I don't think it is faster to load though. One more picture of the cockpit with my friend Howard.

Thats about as loaded as my boat can be for 2 people/6 days on the Main Salmon. Big fan of the everything bag/crossover bag. Jan @ stitches & stuff made one for me & it makes things alot easier. Worth every penny.
