Will the Bravo fit between the wheel wells of a pickup truck?
Do you put carpet or foam down to cushion the hull? :?:

Sure... In a long bed, fleet-side, full size truck. Won't fit in toy trucks or step-sides. You can make it work in a short bed, but it's kind of ugly.

As for padding, I just have a rubber matt in the bed. I usually put a couple of foam blocks at the bow. The Bravo does ride better bow forward. Helps to have tie down points low in the truck bed.

I have a short bed tundra and I put Bravo's in there all the time, I put the stern in 1st so i can leave the a frame, I have kayak racks the sometime interfere with the a frame.

I have a spay in bed liner so I do not put any extra padding in there. Just be careful that the gudgeon's do not get messed up if you go stern 1st!

Broke it down into two pieces then tied it to the boat. Sail, battens and "Stuff" went into the cab.
