I was thinking of turning my sea eagle 370 upside down and sleeping on the bottom while covered up with a bivy sack. I'd rather have a tent tho. Are there any free standing tents that would sit nicely on the bottom of an inflatable kayak? It'd be a great way to make your IK double as a high quality air mattress. Especially if you are really low on space, like for backpackers using packrafts, or motorcycle riders.

I think a simple tarp tent would be cheap and functional. If the seat or seats are removable, I’d sleep in the boat rather than on the bottom, as the bottom fabric is probably tougher and better suited for laying on the ground.

You could just use a tarp or the fly from a lightweight tent (one of those where the poles attach to the fly and not the inner tent). That way, withe kayak the right way up, the rain wouldn't run into the boat, and if you are in insect infested areas, you could have the innner insect screen tent inside the kayak
