You can alwayds but a cheap collapsible dolly from harbor freight to get it on and off the dock.
I would love one made with collapsible handle and roller wheels that locked. Also, would need someone to take out of my suv and put it back in for me.
Rockler woodworking and hardware is where I got mine
The outside edges of the box are Teak and the Drawers also it’s been with me for 25 years
Looks like Stan’s
New box, thanks Rudy
Harbor Freight $79 bucks
Will it hold up well with the weight of jigs, sinkers, etc???
All the boxes look great, but i still don't see a beer holder. If I gotta set my beer on that rail one more time im gonna ****!
I looked at these. It is a tiny TOOL box. The drawers are so thin I didn't believe it would close if I put a treble hook in it. I passed on it last year as I wouldn't have been able to fit anything in it, however it does look great in pictures.
Here is another example of a simple box, not coated with marine spar urathane. If you want a similar box, he can make one with that coating.
Look at the thumbnails to see the wood...
I have been inspired by you all to build a box for my 18dayer in January,2019.
Does anyone have the measurements for the racks on the RP?
I am building with in mind that I'll likely not get a top shelf spot. Will be ready to put my box on the deck (where I was last time with my SKB 3 years ago). New box will have removable lower element so I don't have to bend to the floor every time. If I get a second shelf, I want what I build to fit.
Here are shots of initial stages. The wood is from Northwest Timber. Lewis Judy there has the best figured, dry, stable wood in the world! He is about 20 minutes from my home.
That wood grain is awesome
What kind of finish did you use?
That is not the finish -- That is just alcohol to show the grain.
Finish so far is reinforcing the inside with fiberglass with epoxy. Since epoxy does not stand up to UV well, the final several coats will be two part polyester resin.
I am trying to make it so it can g=be dropped from waist weight and not break, while keeping it litish. Tough challenge.
Fun project. Using Abalone inlay to fill the screw plugs. Powder coated aluminum for the rocket launchers. Drawer in stead of lift top. Am coming to really respect the time people put into the beautiful boxes in this thread.
The Rooster back tackle rack is 17” wide with a lip.The tackle box is 17” wide. I can adjust the PVC for height to keep above that lip and use the hole in the PVC to strap the box down and steady the rod. The box takes up minimal space on the tackle rack and does not compete with other reel space on the rack.
When you say "wide," is that top to bottom? That is a beautiful box you have there.
Any idea on how far top to bottom any of the other boats, but specifically the RP, have for their racks.
The tackle rack that is near the bait tank. It only handles like 6-7 boxes and gets grabbed by the first loaded passengers. The width 17" was when I load my SKB sideways on the end of the rack for access. The rack length goes port to starboard wide. Sometimes a greedy first loader will stick 2 boxes in there, (thinking of one individual).
