Red face A little out of hand?

Yikes! I just finished packing away all the stuff on the list for the off season. Whaddya think? Excessive? I'm thinking of weighing it all and taking the boat out for a quick spin just to feel the difference. Any guesses as to how much it weighs in at. - Jeff

Wow. That's got to be worth at least a couple mph.

Those are in case the manual bilge pumps fail... tie em to the cleats and keep the boat afloat while using the paddle and the flare guns.

Yeah, I'd say it was a little......excessive.
Looks more like your emptying and apartment than a boat.

I learned a long time ago to just bring the bare essentials. And we only pack what we need, when we go out. Very little is left behind at the end of the day. We unload just about everything when we're done. Some small things like paper plates, paper towels, toilet paper, can/bottle cozies, and PFD's stay behind. And since my boat can only carry 7 persons, we have 9 PFD's. 7 adult, one child and one infant.

I have never seen someone with a dresser in a boat. That may be a little much.
