bow box

after setting the boat up and messing about with it i looked for a bow box and came across this its for a horse box corner, for feed i think very robust 5 mm thick PVC fits right in the bow its measures 12 inch deep 23 inch long 23 inch wide great for an anchor bucket cost 18.
i did have to go round it with the sander to take off the Sharpe edge but fits nicely.

cheers

Jeff that's a good buy and not something I'd have thought of... despite until a couple of years ago having decades of horse owning experience.

We sold pretty well all our stable kit including two like yours a while back but have retained one corner manger for "old times sake"... however it's Victorian cast iron so probably not totally compataible with the Aerotec although perhaps would trim it nicely when one up!

I must admit the only thing that sometimes frustrates me with the Aerotec is simple storage which was so easiy achieved with our old Honwave 3.5 alloy floor in much the same way as you have done with your Quicksilver.

well the old Victorian corner manager will look good with a few nice flowers in it at the front door.
this box is spot on for bits & bobs i have fixed it to the bow dodger to prevent it slipping back with lobster pot hooks [pvc] they are handy too not using as an anchor bucket as i have that sorted on the top of the bow dodger.

cheers

it covers my keel valve which will stop dirt going in, have a look on google there are loads, look up horse feeding thats what they are used for in horse boxes and in different colors i just got that because it was near to me to have a look at.
i can give exact measurments if you require lip size etc two 450 mm transom wheels will fit in as a guide
cheers

>>>Boat in Devon, tape measure and me in London

With me it's often as simple as SIB packed up on the garage shelf and can I really be bothered to unpack and set it up to find out this or that measurement. But just done that very thing to find out the length of the air floor retaining straps for a little mod I have in mind.

The Aerotec of course comes with it's own smart "corner manger" from new. Problem is the bag is so capacious it's capable of being filled with gear that will weigh so much the straps will rip off either bag or boat.

Would have been far better if they'd made it to go right to the floor so it was fully supported... and with the first 6" of construction fully waterproof material.
