SIB Storage

What kind of containers does everyone use for storage on their sib? Things like anchor, fire ex., flares etc. Ive heard of people using cool/ice boxes. Anyone else use anything different? Im after something that I can just lift in and out of the boat as and when required. Oh and its needs to be 'splash proof' also.

The anchor box is permanently fixed into my SIB.

For stuff I want to take on / off easily (flares, VHF, toolkit, pump etc) I use a Musto bag (smaller versions of this):

With a short bit of shock cord with hooks through the shoulder strap attachment points at either end of the zip. The hooks then clip onto the boat. On my last SIB I clipped it across the boat at the front, on this one I clip it along the tube on one side.

I use a cooler, actually two but I really only need one. The one beside my seat fits perfectly and contains a small bucket with aearator for live bait, an emergency flag, flairs, and pump while the one in front maily serves as a bow situated seat for when the boat's a rest and I'm fishing. I'd thought about making it a cooler radio box (by mounting speakers outside and a battery and amp inside to connect to an ipod) but that was just a thought. Probably won't do it unless i have some time off and get really bored.
