Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

I'll add one. Don't know the total cost, but way under $100.

We like to use the 2 1/2 gallon drinking water containers for drinking and cooking with. We were just putting it on the countertops and that would work fine while sitting up on stands in the boatyard but not very practical underway.

So where to put it and how to hold it in place? There was some room on one side of the sink next to the companionway, so that is where it went.



... where the larger right arrow is. It also had to not interfere with the propane solenoid switch.



The above picture is when it was about finished.



The platform will lift out of there, but it is in very secure and at this point I don't see any need for any pins, but that would be easy to do.

The water container....



...is also a very snug fit and there is a lip on the front of the platform that keeps it from sliding forward.

It is in a convenient place to use and still out of the way. Once in place we were quite happy with it.

You can find more pictures and the whole build here....
