How Do Your Store Your Stuff?

 

Where do you put stuff? It’s a question every boat owner must tackle since storage space is at a premium. To help keep gear organized and easy reach, add the following stowage systems to the standard glove compartments and drawers that come with most vessels:

Dock Box: These are great for storing large items that aren’t needed on every trip including spare life vests, water toys, extra ropes and cleaning materials.

Clear Utility Boxes:
Choose several sizes for organizing small items ranging from screws, nuts and clamps to fishing lures, spare parts, utensils, etc. Keep small boxes in a glove compartment or drawers. Load larger boxes together in utility bins.

Bag It Up:
Able to be smushed into tight places, water-proof carry bags are ideal for blankets, sweatshirts and small to mid-sized items you’d like to keep dry. For quick-drying or waterproof items like water shoes, water wings or snorkels, mesh bags can be hung over rails, behind a seat or from a cabin wall.

Bungee Cords: Store charts and lightweight flat items overhead using crisscrossed bungee cords to make a web on the ceiling or beneath a T-top. Depending on the size needed, use one or two long cords with multiple hooks or a series of cords attached hook-to-hook.
