A roof mounted car transportation container comprises two sections which are hinged together with hinges 4 and can be unfolded to form a boat. In the unfolded condition the two sections are locked together with brass retaining bolts 5 which pass through a central thwart 6 that is foam filled to provide the boat with extra buoyancy. The boat has a flat stem to which an outboard motor may be attached while skegs (9, Fig 2) are provided on the bottom of the boat to give it greater lateral stability. In the folded condition the transportation container is held firmly closed by means of clips 10.
