Bargain storage bottles from Mailspeed

Bargain storage bottles from Mailspeed

I think they may have got the price wrong-these are 4 times the price everywhere else.

Grab 'em while it's hot etc...

Right or wrong price, what use is 'splash proof' on a RIB!

Pelican Protector cases, they are the way forward.

Those prices are pretty good.

Can't realistically attach them to an A-frame though...

There is only 1 reason they call these splashproof - they don't have an O ring seal in the lid. Make a rubber seal for the lids and they suddenly become VERY waterproof - a right bargain - I've got 4 of them!!!

And a selection of O-ring cords can be found here...

Just choose a suitable diameter, grab your self a tube of superglue to fix the ends of the cord together and Bob's your mothers brother
