Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!
Well. I needed a new holding tank, one was stinkin and only 6 gallons, decided to take advantange of available space so I made one. New one holds 14 gallons and still fits in same location as old one
All said and done I had about $110.00 including hose, fittings and materials.
I posted quite a few pics on my blog, here is the link....i hate resizing pics
so far it holds water just fine
A few years from now, after a few weeks of hot July Virginia weather, I don't want to even think of how your porous wood box is gonna stink up your boat. At some point it's going to rot through and leave an awful mess to clean up.
But it was cheap!
Did you consider coating the whole insides with epoxy or barrier coat? At least that would have eliminated the porosity and prevented rotting from inside out.
