Ok relatively newbie question: well sort of .... been playing with lots of different boats, but only just re-acquired a SIB after number of years. Waterproof kit boxes? As really important stuff usually goes in individual small boxes or dry bags, and the main grab/kit box usually there to keep evening in order and together - why not something like Stanley Fat Max waterproof tool box - at £30 lot more cubic cms per £ than bigger Pelican cases. Despite being born in the south have lived in Yorkshire most of life and thus I might just have become culturally assimilated!

Well coincidentally Lee1 has raised the DeWalt/Stanley box thing in a thread not that long ago. To my mind if you go to sea you want to know you have kit proven for that environment. Those toolboxes are only rated to 10% of the pressure of a mains hose and I would be surprised if they were rated for salt water sea use.

For around the price I'd rather pick up a second hand Peli or one of the new Peli clones... or for my choice of 10+yrs three new dry bags which have never failed me.

Here's the thread... A good sib or rib watertight storage box solution

As Solveig very wisely says "It's your decision".

OMG - so many years later. This kit is still working (mostly) - here's what it's doing now:

Clockwise:

Tiny fender - for buoying a line, if required - lost at sea (still experiencing some "loss" issues )
BCD air cylinder - for tube top-ups - dumped
10m x 14mm rope - for general purpose tying off - chopped up and used for new willkcraft's fenders
15m x 8mm rope - for general close to shore anchoring - retained
75m x 6mm rope (cord?) - for when the sh1t hits the fan - retained - used recently to tow a 7m inboard pilothouse at 15kts - good string!
Cordura "sports" bag with reinforced base - still in use on SIB
2.5kg Bruce anchor with 4m x 6mm chain - still in use, used on SIB and also as a lunchhook for 2.75 ton willkcraft - good anchor!
Assorted bungees and "small stuff" (one made up as a killcord extension)- crab still on the willcraft killcord.
Bailer, sponge and cloth - Still on SIB
Flat tipped dive knife - has shackle slot, saw and plain edges, line cutter. Lives on willkcraft now as main knife, custom sheath on my jockey back.

OCD - at least when "they come for me", I'll be packed - oh yeah!
