Sib storage / sit on box.

Hi.
I'm looking for some advice on purchasing a large plastic box for my Sib.
Currently I sit on a coarse fishing box with an Airflo cushion on top.
The box has seen better days and I'm looking to replace it.
Looking for one of the cool box types that will sit neatly between the tubes of my Honwave 3.5ae.
I intend to sit on the middle of said box on my cushion and operate the tiller.
It needs to be able to take my 18.5stone bulk bouncing up and down on it in a chop.
Anyone got any recommendations?

Yep, Peli case is good, use a big one myself but not tall enough to sit on TBH.

whats the width? - I've got the old rotomolded benchseat from "Imposter" (before it's jockey seat upgrade). Does the box just sit there or is it fixed in someway?

Custom build in GRP...
If you want insulation you can add it
If it needs strength you can...

Cheers for the replies guys - food for thought.
I've checked online and the space between the honwave tubes to fit the box in is 80 cm.
Gonna have a good look next week when I'm off work.
Poly to answer your ealier question I will probably tie the box down some how either to the floor or grab ropes around the tubes.
