Not sure if I'll actually use this or not since i usually just have my tacklebox and a small cooler back there, but it was something to do..
I ran across these in lowes today, and thought they would make great storage boxes for the the yaks.. They are very sturdy because they are made to stand on (push poling?), and they have legs that raise them a couple inches off the floor, they have a tray in the top and room for waterproof plano boxes, and they also could accommodate probably two rod holders on each side.... Plus they are only $28 bux instead of $130.
I think i would buy some plastic paint and make it black top to bottom...
I grabbed a yellow paint to try that matched the PA according to the cap, but once painted and dry, it is a shade or two off. So i may still go with the original idea of black.
Maybe once the rod holders and stuff were on it, it would be close enough but who knows
I pulled the front latch off and plan to put a shock cord clasp on it, looking at the hinge, it's just a thin rod of what looks to be galvanized metal. Even if it does eventually rust, it would take all of 2 minutes to replace. if your rinsing your equipment like i do, i really don't think you'll ever have a problem with it anyway.
