    I just bought a Cumberland about a month ago and I do love almost everything about it except i have the same issue of back folding over. I think I will try something like stiff but lightweight sheet inside back to stiffen it. maybe cut plex glass or aluminum sheet. The kitty litter square box sounds ok but just one more thing to carry to waters edge i figure but if it works ok. I just may have to borrow a cat.

    Maybe a cheap plastic cutting board that's the right size?

    for me the bucket is a plus. it holds my fins, spreader bar, net, pfd and water bottles. some guys have all this attached to the tube during transport but that make the tube too heavy to hoist up on to my back (have a bad shoulder). once on the water the bucket holds the clothing that comes off as the temp rises....and if I am feeling saintly, the trash picked from the water or shoreline.
