Boxes for Boats
Summer is the season of being outside and enjoying the sun, sand and water. Going out on the boat is one of my family’s favorite hobbies on summer weekends and holidays. Everyone knows the importance of storing life vests and various other safety materials on boats for that rare chance that something could go wrong while you are out enjoying the lake. It is also important (although admittedly slightly less important) to have plenty of refreshments and snacks on board to relieve your passengers of thirst and hunger pains. You don’t want people cramping up while they are in the middle of an epic tubing trip around the lake.
Boats are great, but one thing they are not is full of storage space. With all the things that need to come on boats, such as ropes, life jackets, snacks, and the tubes and skis themselves, it is important and vital to have a place to safely and securely store these items for times when the boat is being used.
One way that people successfully and efficiently provide usable storage spaces for boats is by implementing fiberglass boxes around the boat. Fiberglass boxes are great because, if done correctly, they can function as seating areas as well. Fiberglass boxes are corrosion resistant, durable, fire resistant and provide long lasting and lightweight storage solutions. Fiberglass is a good material choice for these types of storage boxes because they do not leak, and also do not let water inside. This makes it safe to store items such as phones and other items that should not get wet. Although everyone that has lost a phone to the bottom of a lake knows that bringing a phone anywhere near the water is not usually the best choice, with our without a fiberglass box to keep it safe.
