It’s not unusual to see portable storage units on the roofs of cars or trucks. We’ve also seen canoes and small boats on those roofs. BoatPack looks like a great implementation of a hybrid idea — enough space for your goods AND a boat, too.
The BoatPack package includes a wooden seat, folding oars and rowlocks. It has a storage capacity of 650 litres and carry a maximum of 165kg in the boat — enough for one adult and one child.
While it does sound gimmicky, something like the BoatPack can be useful in a disaster, especially if you live in a flood-prone area.
The BoatPack costs $1,590 Australian dollars, which includes free shipping to many countries including the United States.
