    Need protected small item storage suggestions...-gctid376861

    This '12 180 I have doesn't have much protected storage for things like your reg papers, cell phone, wallet, car keys, pocket knife,and other small personal items like that. I've been thinking of trying to find some small bag or pouch I can mount to the sidewall there by the driver seat, but have not run into anything I like that much yet. How have others solved this issue?

    One idea may be a "dry-sack" that they use on kayaks. They come in all sizes.

      Aye, I have one, and it works great for what it is. I was hoping to find something easier to get into and out of that I can actually fasten to the wall for quick and easy access when needed. A soft glove box, in other words.....

        Plastic ammo can - installed in the second battery location (assuming you don't run a 2nd battery)

          Not a bad idea, but this model doesn't have a battery "location" per se. The dealer installed a plastic tray rear center, and that's that. I sort of like the idea of having the container up near the cockpit. However, you've given me an idea, if I can find a shallow width plastic can, I can mount that to the wall.....

            Tupperware makes all kinds of sizes of containers and they can often be found cheap at the thrift store. Just make sure to check the lids for tight fit. Do not try the newer cheap ones sold now days in most supper markets, The good ones will take 100's of opening and closings and still stay air tight but the new semi disposables will not.

              Thanks, all. I get two things from this - not a widespread issue of concern, and nobody makes anything specific to the task. Gonna hunt down plastic containers. Drill a couple holes, some stainless washers, maybe a stainless piano hinge, and fasten it to the wall. Guess this is one of the places a bargain boat cuts corners....

                  I was going to suggest white water rafting or kayak dry-gear bags. Good suggestion!

                  The Tupperwear idea is good also, and certainly inexpensive.

                  If budget is OK with this, the Pelican Cases are excellent .... and they'll take a good beating, but are somewhat expensive!

                  These are available in quite a few different sizes also.
