I know this is maybe a silly questions but how are most people carrying wood on their boats. It always seems like a necessary pain. Any thoughts or creative ideas?

I now carry a handled, fabric wood hauler designed for household woodburning. It carries easily and straps nicely to my net on the back.

I went on a trip with a friend who is in construction... He used the heavy duty white shrink wrap like you see on new jet ski's or ski boats to individually wrap bundles... That worked pretty slick. The downside is unless you know a guy that knows a guy it isn't going to be an option. I suppose a bills bag would be an option if you had an older one you didn't mind beating up..

Free cardboard boxes from produce department at the grocery store. They strap down nice and are easy to haul. I'll use the box for recycling or a side table until i'm ready to burn it.

Feed bags work great. I have chickens so I have lots of them. If you cut your wood to 14" it will fit perfectly. Fill about 3/4 full then roll and duct tape closed. The empty bag is great for crushed cans or other trash.

Come on dude. The downside is bunch of wasted " heavy duty white shrink wrap". After a few years in the construction industry I see no point in recycling anymore. 40 percent of our landfills are filled from construction waste . Anyway I put my firewood in a drybag that I inherited from my parents 30 years ago.Works great.

For winter trips, I fill two 30mm ammo cans with bear bricks. They are squarish and fit very nicely in 20 or 30mm cans. with 30mm cans there is more room left for kindling along the side. I also pack more of them with kindling in a dry box that I also pack the fold up wood stove in. They burn great and back much better in a dry box or rocket box than wood.

I use military duffle
bags usually 20$ or so at army surplus stores. Don't get the extra large ones by the time you load it with wood you'll need a infantry division to move it.

I have a friend that installs hardwood flooring (the real stuff that gets sanded and finished after installing). The scraps measure 3/4" x 3" x 8" to 15" long sometimes. I drop off a 30 gallon bucket at the job site and pick up at end of day 30 gallons of dried oak hardwood that fits in a rocket box perfectly (that I use for trash later). Recycling at it's best. Making some friends in the construction business equals free fire wood. ;-)

I'm confused. Are you all discussing winter trips?
Why the hell would you carry firewood in the summer?
The silly things rafters do:rolleyes:.

Because some rivers have have very picked over camps. And some you aren't even allowed to harvest firewood. So if you want a fire you bring wood. It's not a big deal.
