With everything else - life jackets, tank, anchor, paddles etc there wont be a lot of room left. But it will all fit in no problem. I have a Legacy estate and with the rear seats folded down I could also fit in a dismantled trailer! I usually pack the boot to the point where I can still see over the stuff in the rear view mirror, so could squeeze more in if I had too.
For going on holiday with family, on the other hand, I am having to either trailer boat or put boat/life jackets/empty tank on a roof rack - engine and bits n bobs in the boot along with a massive pile of all manner of family holiday type shight.
Boat goes into one of those folding type bags, with straps, so it will pack down very well but as uny1965 said, it probably wont go back to the size it was new.
