Box of goodies

Hey all

I'm off fishing in 3 weeks so I thought I'd build a sweet box to replace the front seat (bolted onto second of 4 panels from the front, free of any valves).

Items included:

switch panel
speakers, amp and mp3 connection
battery, solar charger and motor charger and monitor (24vac rectified to 12v)
marine lights to pull out and velcro to the sides + anchor light for rear
ice/anchor bin with draining bungs
super comfy seat on top to sunbathe sideways on!

If anyone's keen I'll upload photos, dimensions etc of the project as it evolves. There should already be some pics of my boat floating on here.

Sweet glad someone's keen!

Box is partially done, with a quick lick of paint. Should get some more done today!



Few rig and a barracuda just out from the local beach. Rig tasted great, barracuda will be for bait next time.

Heh it wasn't fun getting those in the boat! The head was off fairly quickly!

blue cod, snapper, kingfish, grouper, terakhi, trevally, kahawai... so a few species to go for! But the kingfish and grouper will be interesting to try get into the boat

There's nothing wrong with wishful thinking

Nice. The kingfish doesn't look too bad either!

Nom! Things would be a bit more cosy if she was on my ship!

Threw the seats together today. Think i got a bit too carried away with the amount of foam used and the rear seat size but hey if it keeps the passengers out fishing longer...
