We use the space under the gang to store our fenders - three medium ones on the pram hood and two big ones either side of it. With the center cockpit they are not a visual hazard and we just don't have enough big spaces onboard. I installed small padeyes and lash the fenders (3 groups) with trucker's hitches.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

Okay, it's a rack, but not luggage

You can get them from Thule (as on the one in the pix). Another, slightly cheaper version is by Graber (made in my home town). They are usually mounted to the companies rack system. However, is would be simple to mount them to just about anything.

Re: Luggage rack??

Get or build a proper deck box, PLEASE.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Like this... obviously for a smaller boat you'd need to make it smaller than this one.

One of these won't make your boat look like a Volvo wagon.

Why? Oh, and before you start, don't even try and say your example looks better than mine. Hehe.
