I need some DRY STORAGE

Recommended Posts

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

blind bags are the way to go, space savers too. most guys take out the middle seat to get more your why take away space just my 02 cents.

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.

    • Now that the corn is out and the ground is white the birds are really showing themselves. Three times in the last month I have seen 50-60  birds on a short day. Nearly every one was in a group and they are concentrating in dense thickets of plum brush.    And there are literally next to no hunters out and about going after them which is a big change from even a decade ago
    • I too remember these stupid punch cards in High school.  All the Nerds in the Computer class did stuff with um! 😅
    • I remember those stupid punch cards.  I was in junior high and had to “program” em in class.  I hated em and thought I’d just avoid using computers altogether! 😀
    • Good hunt in SD today: 
    • Had the day off so hit some public land around the Mitchell area today.   Did well, my favorite upland gun is my O/U and is currently broke. Busted a firing pin and waiting for gunsmith to get a knew one made on a lathe. So today I brought out the old 870 which I haven’t shot in at least 5 years or more.   Thought it would throw off my shooting but to my surprise managed a quick double on 2 shots lol. it’s always amazing how fast a day in the field can turn around. And I really enjoyed shooting this gun again. It’s amazing how something so cheap and simple is so good.   Day started out really slow I couldn’t find birds anywhere and then found the motherload. Shot my 3rd bird, put it in my vest and bumped birds all the way back to the truck.   Good late season hunt just wish we had more snow. And this warm weather isn’t helping ice that’s for sure.  
    • Looks good!  👍 Lets see no work gloves, may be a hat?  Do you have a coaster under that hot pan mister? 😊
    • Steak fajitas tonight.
    • The window on AIX that I read Usenet News on was....   I started on computers with punch cards, then moved up to a 2260 and MTMT (multiple terminal monitor task) which was an IBM Rochester homegrown thing for running terminals attached to the 360/65 we had at the time.   Actual first computer I ever used was a CDC 1604 at the U of MN.....
    • There I might have made it a little easier to read😁    Hope we are all still around in another 10 years!!
