Actually, I see on my lease agreement that some slips may negotiate for a price to add a dock box but didn't really think about it.

Re: What do you keep in your Dock Box?

I keep all my Oil / Lube change out equipment in my dock box. Messy stuff, nice to keep it out of the boat. I also throw my radiant heater in there when I take off sailing. Also keep my hand pump for my fenders in the dock box. That's about it. Very happy to have a dock box.

Re: What do you keep in your Dock Box?

I could probably amass many things to put in a dock box and for that reason I'll never have one again. I had one about thirty years ago, but it tended to collect junk. We are liveaboard cruisers and anything thing that we add that is not on our boat takes a little away from our mobility. The same goes with items on our deck. We make sure nothing needs to be moved or stored for us to be quickly underway. It's not like I need to escape in a hurry, but I just fear the beginings of "growing" to the dock.
