That sounds good enough.

A four-foot long hidey holey is what I'm trying to avoid, hence trying to get takedown precision rifles.

The storage spaces on fishing boats are often 16" to 21" in their longest dimension. It's possible to buy custom storage spaces that are larger, but the more you scale it up, the less it looks like the typical storage for tackle boxes and other fishing stuff that all boats have.

This is why rifles that can be stowed with no piece longer than that are so useful.
