I'm regretting ever mentioning it.

The home made version actually worked out quite expensive as I bought water-proof vinyl and foam specifically for marine use. As my mother-in-law was a tailor (now retired), the whole thing was put together professionally. It was sewn inside out using heavy gauge thread. I added stainless steel eyelets to a vinyl strap to secure it to the bow cleat. If I was doing it again I'd use a webbing strap instead.

I'd personally avoid using a plywood base as the bow locker already provides rigidity. Use a decent depth of foam, as anyone up front will no doubt testify to an uncomfortable ride if it gets rough.

Is that with or without VAT?
