Jump in the water, climb on, game over.
You have to plan on everything getting wet,
or at the very least, be in dry boxes/bags.

I would HIGHLY advise attempting to paddle with
a 5 Gallon Water Container before attempting
to transport diesel fuel for the sailboat.
-Water weighs 8 lbs per gallon - and -it sloshes
You might be very unhappy with ballast that moves.
Dry Bags - well - aren't dry except for splashes.
Submerge one and you'll see bubbles spew forth.
Manufacturers fine print is a true catch 22 for many.
Be very, very, wary what goes into a dry bag
- and try some ""experiments"" first with a
flipped kayak that will submerge an attached dry bag.
A little wind, a little waves, and that "flat-bottom"
barge idea may cause you to reconsider the
supply side of a short- wide- kayak on the ocean.
Demo if you can - bring 5 gallon water containers along
