Mr d
From your posts I guess you are on a budget. On my first rib (4m Humber 20yrs ago ) I had a 150lt blue screw top barrel I got free from a wood mill, it had been used for preservative. It also, placed on its side, double as a seat before I made a console. Des

I guess I'm spoilt with an anchor locker and jockey console.

But somethings you may want to consider:

For odds and sods I have a car boot tidy - which has numerous different sized pockets with substancial velcro flaps to stop things jumping out.
I have this running down the side of the jockey console but guess you could put it anywhere.

I also have an elasticated cargo net at the back of the boat to throw loose bags under.

I also have a bench seat at the back which has two drawers slung under it (large tupperware boxes) these are useful for keeping spares - short lengths of rope etc.

Hope this gives you some ideas.

Mike

Ah yes, one is also hidden from view under the seat. Excellent and waterproof.

Hi,

If you're on a budget, try the orange round bottles instead of the yellow flare ones, they do the same job for about 6. If you want something more flexible try a canoe/ kayak supplier. They stock dry bags between about 10 to 80 litres, starting at 10, they just clip through a spare d ring, and stay there - and they float! (if you don't overfill them)

You can also get D rings fitted relatively inexpensively by a manufacturer/repairer. It could even be a DIY job if you can source the bits - try http://www.pcsboatbits.co.uk/download-Aquamarine.asp - go to section 5 + rib fittings
