the lower box always falls out into the hull.
I was just having a look at one here. How could the lower Plano fall out (the ones we provide are a net fit)? Maybe the line (that raises and lowers the tackle management as you open the hatch) comes off the lid and allows them to come out? With the line properly attached to the lid fitting and run through the "handle" on the bottom side of the tackle management... I see no way for the tackle boxes to come out. The line acts as a seat belt.
How do you think that is happening?
Not sure of why it's happening, but has happened to me on the two trips I've taken so far (maybe too much slack).
To correct this, I took up a bit of slack on the existing line, then duplicated it on the other side..now it has two points of contact plus the lines appear to keep the boxes seated tightly to the carrier frame and to the underside of the hatch.
Will be getting a water test (fishing) later this week, so I should know more then.
Also, I'm a huge
fan of the new hatch & Vantage
seat system, for sight fishing the Indian River
here on Florida's Treasure Coast
(& Space Coast), I don't think I could ask for more........
This is my solution-
