my math conversions clearly need work lol

to be totally self sufficient (commendable) you need your own compass and charts. If you get separated from your pack you'll want them.

Looks like a fine deck bag but to me a deck bag of whatever shape is less aerodynamic than a clear deck.

I'd still think once then twice about any of my sleeping gear being outside the boat and exposed to the wet.

The GPro is 17'8" and not esp. low volume compared to other Greenland styles.

You will be out for less than 3 days.

I have packed for 5 days' kayak camping on Lake Ontario and again on Lake Superior (100% self sufficient as you are including food and water, w. ability to boil/filter water as you will be doing) in a sea kayak that is 16 feet and even lower volume (think Valley Avocet LV and CD Suka) And still had roughly one cubic foot avail. No deck bag and -0- on deck but spare paddle, compass and charts.

Sure you can't fit everything *in* your boat? Asking not arguing. In the end, you are the captain of your ship.
