So since it is the 4th of July and I am avoiding the lakes and rivers with my boat at all costs I figured it would be a good time to figure out how to do some simple fixes to my boat. Here are some of the things I want to do and need help finding the products to do so.
- Cargo netting
I want something like the stuff you see in the back of the seats in the older suburbans. Its netting with a stretch top so it secures all of your stuff. I want it in a few sizes. I would like to place one under my drivers seat and one under the cargo door under the glove box on my boat so I am looking for something like 24 X 18 or so and 48 x 18.
not sure if they make it but I sure as hell need it.
-Ballast (long term)
I wanted to see how much it would cost to add one more pump to plumb in a front ballast. And how do you drill through a gel coat? Also where would the intake be placed? I am guessing near the ones that are already there for the three other ballast tanks.. but you never know.
-Bigger Ice chest
Our boat has a small one but I think I am just going to get another small one that could fit under a seat. I am open to any other more convenient ideas for Ice chests though..
-Storage for shoes?
I am trying to figure out a better place to put shoes. Our boat has no sort of bin that is just plastic or anything everything is carpet and once shoes are on it, dirt comes with it.. so I need ideas of what I could get to put shoes in..
Any other helpful storage or ballast mods i should know about?
