Sonar - where did you get those? Look quite handy.
a factory your have to ask about they were used for dry powder in a chemical plant.
food stuff dry goods.
There o.k. for what we needed at the time.
Kept everything dry and holds a lot as well.

And when we needed a bit more room in the boat we tied a rope around the top and chucked it into the sea it floated and everything was still bone dry.

I only put boot liners in as instructed so you owe me a new dishwasher

I use these as well, one with a screw top lives in the bow and I have a couple of clamp tops to carry as required. They came from the local indian restaurant. They have food stuffs delivered in them.

1, or 2, god washes later and a free barrell was had

If oly a few bits then dry bags are used, cliped to the handle of the bow barrell.

sounds like you need a zero one pack!

Sounds to me like you need a zero one pack from Truenorth outdoor.

http://www.truenorthoutdoor.co.uk/merchandise.htm

These are designed and made by a mate of mine called Jed Yarnold. Well known in the canadian canoeing fraternity, he used to design equipment whilst serving in HM forces.

Now retired from his military life, he designs equipment for his expeditions. The zero one pack is pretty much bomb proof. Simple in design strong and... waterproof. The prototype was even used as a sea anchor attached to a line and thrown overboard whilst full of kit.

The best thing is that they are designed to stow well (in a bow, under a thwart on a landy roofrack etc.), have loads of attachment points. They can be carried like a rucksack and then the straps all pull tight or stow away so that they are not trailing everywhere. You can probably tell that I am a bit of a fan! Pm me if you want further info. I may be able to arrange mates rates.

It's ok my fingers look like I've got Frost bite on the tips, but the engineer is coming out tomorrow to show me the error of my ways, in my book anything that is new out of the box and when you turn it on blows the fuse the RCD and the ring main trip is not right

But the back of the gay grey looks like new
