We have a single unit. The photos are of top (the plastic) and bottom (the supporting grid). Ours is about 36" long by 24" wide and easily fits in our port lazaret locker. I usually add a short length of split foam pool "noodle" to the sides to prevent chafe on the hull. The device has worked well for us since being made up in 1987.
