110v power tools, fishing stuff, vaccum, pressure sprayer, tables, chairs, umbrella, crab traps and a 19 foot run about.

My dock box is a dock house.

Re: What do you keep in your Dock Box?

I like the idea of the target on the approach side of the box. I'm sure I could get the award after a couple outings...

Yes, what ever they allow go as big as they allow. You will eventually find enough stuff you cannot live without to fill it.

Or you might become like chuckles and just build a house to keep your boat stuff in!

It doesn't sound like you need to build one at all if you are not sure what you need to put in it. I would take the time you would spend to build it and have some cocktails...LOL

Sorry ....only kidding...couldn't resist

Re: What do you keep in your Dock Box?

Do marinas usually allow doc boxes? Thinking of putting one at mine.

Re: What do you keep in your Dock Box?

Each place has their own pllicy. Som,e allow on the land...some allow on the dock itself. Some require all the same kind and size. Check where you stay.

Re: What do you keep in your Dock Box?

Tim R - you're not wrong - booze on the boat is good.
You underestimate me, though, sir...
the booze in the box is just in case a) i drink everything on the boat; b) we have unexpected guests from Sailnet forums; c) someone steals my boat.

Cheers!

Re: What do you keep in your Dock Box?

Well.. if I had a dock box and a place to keep it. It would be theft proof,remote and autonomously protected from vandals and other dock creatures. Impossible to remove, climate controlled and with separate area for ice maker and ice cream storage. wine storage and oh yes.. everyday dock necessities. Basically it would be the modern day equivalent to the ark of the covenant!
