I need some DRY STORAGE

8 posts in this topic

Without fail either my parka cover or the liner and usually both get soaked everytime I go out. Here's the drill, start out with all the gear on, get sweaty, peel off some layers, carefully ball up my jacket and place it somewhere "SAFE". Then of course something happens and it's soaked.

Bottom line is that I need some dry storage and am considering building something for my 14' boat. I could be as elaborate as a gun box/bench, a 2' x 2' box, or box in the front of the boat.

I need to here idea's and see pictures if possible. Thanks guys.

If it's just for your jacket why not just get yourself a large blind bag? They are waterproof and some of them float. or check out Mud Buddy's HSOforum, they have a ton of duck boat accesories.

Buy one of those marine duffle bags that roll up on the end and fold over. They come in small sizes and go as big as hockey bags. Doesn't matter if its camo or not, but a can of spray paint and you're set. Its removeable and totally waterproof -- makes a good pillow too! smile

Or, just camo up a cooler. But, I agree, the bags are a real good option.

I have an otter seat with dry storage inside or I have used a cooler in the past. Both work well for coats, lunch or thermos.

I have used a roll top dry bag fishing and hunting for years. I even will take my digital SLR camera along and put it in a dry bag and it stays perfectly dry even in rough waters and rain.

    • The question was in regards to doors. As for breaking glass and entering the home I will remind you that locks only keep honest people out, if someone wants to get in to your house they will. Del you always have a comment that is not relevant to the topic being discussed. Matter of fact you have a comment on everything posted. So my glass door on my house has been there for thirty years and guess what Del... no one has broken it yet!
    • He was talking about updating and upgrading our nuclear weapons,  which aren't related to the middle east.    Getting the 53 brigade combat teams up to readiness standards also will cost money.  
    • How much of that $6 trillion do you suppose is military spending?  I’d venture to guess a large amount of it.  Now while he talks about spending so much in the middle east and ignoring issues at home he apparently wants to add an additional $54 billion to the defense budget which will more than likely be funneled back into the middle eat one bomb at a time.   He might make sense in what he says from time to time but then his actions seem immediately contradict his words. Should we believe the words or the actions more?
    •  Decriminalization only makes small possession and usage kinda illegal.    Laws still have to be upheld.   Mexican cartels still would not be allowed to ship tons of cocaine over the boarder. Doctor still can't write false scripts.  Gangs still cannot run drug dens Staus quo     Just push for complete legalization. Regulate through the government. Lower the cost of product.     Cross your fingers you don't get a Russian heroine epidemic.    Freedom restored.      
    • "We spend $6 trillion in the Middle East, and we have potholes all over our highways and our roads"

      Every now and then it is hard to argue with Trump, the positives aren't many but he is not wrong about everything.
    •     Also, how do you explain the growth rate of U.S. incarcerations since Nixon began the War on Drugs in 1971?   You don't think there is big money involved in prisons?       http://fox6now.com/2017/02/25/private-prison-stocks-up-100-since-president-trumps-win/

    •   He won't ask anyone's advice - that's a big part of the problem.  But judging by his actions and words, he fully intends to return to the criminalization/prison approach.  You know, the method that was a complete failure in the past.   Why wouldn't pharma be worried about heroin and meth?  They make versions of both, so it is direct competition.  There is also real life evidence to suggest that marijuana can be used as a replacement for opioids for pain, so that is a reason for them to be opposed to the legalization of weed, also.  Do you have a better explanation as to why Trump wants to step up enforcement of federal laws against legal purveyors of marijuana according to their state law, rather than simply changing the FDA/DEA classification?                   They would be comparable, except they have spent close to a trillion dollars on the War on Drugs since Nixon signed it into law,      
    •   Is this speculation or do you have a source for this information?    
    • Without media, you will only get what news from the party in control that they wish to give you. With no freedom of the press, no matter what they say, you will eventually lose more than the 1rst. amendment.  Let's see what happens when the President addresses Congress and if it's a rally speech or a substance speech with policy? If it's just rah-rah??, with the corrupt  media,----make up your own mind.
