Never heard an interest in that for a Bravo. Why? It has a solid cockpit floor. For comfort?

I know its a very small boat ,but yes on the foredeck just for extra storage such as a cooler, and I was thinking on the lines of netting , more of a hammock feel. I think the smaller kids would have fun with it as well

Only comment would be to caution about weight forward. Causes handling problems.

This boat is weight sensitive to a very great degree. I just don't see that as a good idea.

You don't need to have that much beer with you at all times.

Just kidding.

I would stay away from that. If you are cracked off the wind at all and get a puff with too much weight forward, the boat will go bow down into the water and you will probably lose your stuff. Happend to me this weekend giving lessons. Had close to 500lbs on the boat and I was teaching a father/son and the dad was up front. We were reaching a bit (about 60' true) and got hit with a puff of about 12 kt or so and the bow went down and water came past the
A-frame. Got the weight back and we were ok.

My thought was stickly for the kids ( weighing under 100 lbs) to use on a not so windy day for some added fun. Thank you for all the info , and will probally not be adding this modification on, since there is also no way to really attach it. Thank again
