Thanks Paul [emoji3].

Great idea on the high density foam. I will definitely try that if the OB doesn’t fit behind the front seats without causing too much grief. It would be nice to keep it out of the way in the back of the motor [emoji106].

I am new to the Frib scene but have bought a 360 mated to a Suzuki 20hp 4 stroke.
I debated the means of carriage of the boat and all kit including both my fishing kit and wildfowling gear plus dogs as i have a Ford Ranger with hard top but decided even that would be a struggle and a back breaker with all the lugging and pushing involved so the answer, I bought a new Ford Transit Custom limited van which i will fit out to take all my boating,fishing and shooting paraphenalia along with sink and cooking facilities and an overnight bed for those awayday trips, sorted.
