Can I put this rib in my truck bed?

Hello everyone
I am interested in this rib boat:

https://www.defender.com/product3.js...88&id=7483347#

Length: 11' 6"
Beam: 5' 9"
Weight: 161 Lbs
Tube Diameter 18"
Stowed Dimensions: 10' 10" x 3' 7" x 1' 8"

My truck has a small bed (Ford maverick, 4.5 ft bed). Can I deflate the tubes and put it in truck bed and inflate it when I arrive in boat ramp or beach?

I have a kayak and that is my only boating experience lol

Thank you in advance!

Can't see why not buy a Decathlon electric pump - they are cheap and work really well!

You may have a hard time fitting it in there but doable, I think. Its going to stick out probably 5' with the tailgate down but with plenty of tying you "should" be okay.
It's the width that might make it tough. My 9.5' barely fits between the sides in my full size truck so I deflate it so it doesn't get cut. It's about the same weight as the one you posted so it's a 2 person job. You may have to angle it on it's side to fit. Won't know until you try it I guess.
Defender is a great place btw. I go often, too often... Very helpful so ask the salesman when you go about transporting. They may let you measure it up in person.
