Built in Storage Compartments-Suppliers?

7 posts in this topic

I'm thinking about changing the layout on my boat a little over the winter-Its a early 80's crestliner-tiller. What I'm looking to do is add larger casting platforms on front and rear, removing a large livewell which is currently in the center of the floor, etc. Wondering if anyone knows a supplier for self contained-drop in type storage compartments- bait wells/live wells. Thinking something I could drop in the front casting deck if the price is reasonable. Any other ideas or tips? Thanks guys-

I am in a similar position Newcastle. I want to add a rear casting platform that I could also use for storage.....unfortunately I can't be of any help to you in regards to storage. I know how it goes with these older boats, the storage is rather outdated (i.e. 6'6" rod lockers!?) Let me know if you find out anything in regards to materials or manufacturers for the remodel. Good luck!

You could try Overton's catalog, they might have something. About 10 years ago we took our boat to Bakken's and had them completely redo our boat. We designed it, they built it, and did a fantastic job for cheaper than one would imagine. I know they sometimes frequent this board, maybe they can help with more info.

Have you checked with Cabela's, Gander, etc? We get ours from 2 suppliers- Lorenze and Jones, and Bell Industries. I'm not sure if they will sell direct or not, but if nothing pans out, give me a shout and we can get them for you.

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
