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 I know how it goes with these older boats, the storage is rather outdated (i.e. 6'6" rod lockers!?)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.

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!
    • Hey team, last miute success for the team...... nice tom too!!! Heading on vacation today will submit it mid next week when I get back. 22.11lbs with 10 3/4 beard. 
    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
