Yep.
3.1m SIB, 9.9hp outboard, 12l fuel tank, oars, seat, pump, launching wheels, fishing gear, etc.
A boot liner is handy to keep the car clean & dry on the way home.

I stuff both the mk1 and the mk2 zodiacs and a 15hp and a 30hp motor in the car along with other gear at the same time but my car is a 3/4ton Chevy Suburban 4x4 with a 6.5L Turbo Diesel engine When I use the old Range Rover I can only take one boat and motor.

i started leaving the trailer at home and now pack it all in the car, most times i drive 7o miles and its less hassle with speed limits ect ,
lucky for me i can get access to a power socket at the boat club and use the clubs vacume cleaner for inflating which takes less than a minuite ,

Only outboard i currently have is a 30hp Tohatsu with a console. That's too large motor for a guy of my size to handle all by myself so i'm thinking about getting a 5 or 9.8hp tiller outboard.

With that, the boat, a 25-litre gas tank and a bag of essentials (battery+pump, paddle, anchor, life jackets) i think i could fit it in a station wagon.

Manageble package for a nice day at the lake/river/bay/younameit

I always fit my old Avon Redcrest & 5hp Seagull in the boot & then sometimes have 3 kids, solid floor, fuel. oars & lifejackets as well.
I'm building a new floor for an old Avon S4-00 & then I need a larger outboard so I think the only sensible option will be a roofrack for the boat, but I'll still carry it deflated.

Used to fit a Zodiac Zed34, a 20hp Blueband and all the gear into an old Rover 418 saloon. It was a bit of a pain installing the floorboards every time.

Bombard 380 , 25 merc, car battery,bravo pump, petrol tank , flare box , paddles , launching trolley - all the boot of my Santa fe . All goes in on the way to the water, but always is much harder to get in on the way home !

I could still get 5 people in the car if needed
