Mystery boxes

Any idea what the two boxes are at the end of Toodle-oo!'s quarterberth? They're actually nicely made teak boxes which have then been laminated over in white. They don't extend into the engine bay or into the rear locker.

Does your 37 have these? What are they for?

Do I have some hidden treasure????

Could it have been to hide the engine controls on tiller model boats (when tillers where standard and wheels were optional)? I have one too.

Bill,

Just saw the picture you posted. I don't have a guess on the box facing aft. Don't have one of those.

Dave.

Bill,
On our boat, those boxes are covering the cockpit seat drain hose. The hose inside goes through the boxes and is connected to the cockpit floor drain hose.

On my 37, the factory installed a safety breaker in that location for the shore power. I asked PSC about the item and location during the final inspection and was informed that it is a required safety item.
