    Is that a fiberglass case with starboard shelves/drawers? I like this if so because starboard is VERY heavy. Like a full tackle station like the OP is after might be an easy 100+ lbs so a light FG box would help.

    Boat outfitters in Florida. Very good quality. They have standard sizes or will make something to fit a specific dimension.

    That’s my plan. Nauset is going to make the fiberglass shell, so it fits in the space like a glove. Boat outfitters, I took one of their starboard designs that they showed on their website and just changed all the dimensions on it. Have it shipped to Nauset, who will do the appropriate cutouts in the fiberglass and install the boat outfitters unit. Promise 8-10 days.

    Looks like your all hooked up, I was going to mention a couple of custom fabricators here on Long island that do nice work with starboard. As has been said the stuff is very heavy but it works well and is durable as can be. I much prefer working with wood but I hav done a few things out of starboard. console 002.jpg console 003.jpg 11262222_10153501049532400_4916329776432108470_n.jpg rd for friends.

    Nice center, I like the radio there. I have the same cutting board. Starboard is heavy, but it holds up well and is solid. My boats heavy anyways, a few more pounds won’t matter much.

    Stopped by the boat, live well coming along, tackle center fiberglass shell, waiting starboard drawer inserts, cut 4x10 300 lb engine hatch into 3 pieces with hydraulic arm assist.

    Tackle center drawers, 5, to come out toward midship, one drawer between ladder and side of boat, third Zf electronic engine control, autopilot with rudder indicator, biwthruster control and steeering toggle lever.

    Frank Snell at Sea Snell Marine built it. SeaSnell Marine Accessories Excellent craftsman but correspondence rivals the telegraph. If you need something for the spring get it going now, if you know what I mean.. In the end I'm very happy with my tackle center, so I guess thats all that matters.

    They said it would take 2 weeks, got it in five days. Outside fiberglass shell out for paint, then Nauset will make proper cutouts and install this. Very pleased with the quality and turnaround. Unit was about $1650, metal slides, keyed button openings on drawers, and custom sized dimensions. About 34 inches high, 20 wide and 24 deep.

    Thanks Erik

    I will measure to get the exact dimensions this week. They had to remove one rod holder, and then cut into the glass. The top has a lip all around on the inside, where the cover will fit, and I believe the cover will open outward, hinged. It doesn’t go all the way down to the deck, leaving about 4 inches open so your feet can stick under it. I already had some plumbing in the boat, so we are just going to extend it under the gunales to the tank. Simple water in/water out method, no special aeration. Drain hole in bottom, with tube extending upward to what we want height of water to be, when water exceeds that height excess goes down the tube, out of the tank. Not sure if we used inner wall of transom as one of the tank walls, or made a complete new tank with 4 sides and the rounded corners. Primarily for mackerel but occasionally smaller bluefish, probably can hold 3-4, 5-7 pound bluefish.

    Went to Nauset to check on the boat - shell painted, 90% installed, cutouts made for the tackle center and rear helm, which will be starboard of ladder, on sliding tray/drawer combo. Existing swing door modified to make it a sliding door to starboard, added height and wheels and made fiberglass upper and lower track. Live well painted and installed, need plumbing done and cover hinged on. Sorry, forgot to get measurements!

    Beautiful tackle center, and smart use of a sometimes wasted space under the ladder.
