    This one is for the 305(5) owners-gctid369982

    Carlos mentioned this topic in his refrigerator thead, and Im curious too, and I don't want to hijack, so here's a new one. What kind of stuff do you store on your boat and where do you keep it?

    I'll start...

    In the cabin under the cushions...

    - I have way too many life jackets there. I also have an extra power cable. Don't know why. I probably will never need 2, but I've got an extra one there. I also have my magma grill under there along with a small wet vac and some extension cords.

    Under the front port seat...

    - Here I keep safety stuff like flares. I also have a wet suit in there which I've never used, a quart or two of motor oil and a quart of gear lube, just in case. I've also got a fairly large tackle box in there that is filled with a lot of tools. It's like my garage in a tackle box. Theres also some extra line in there.

    Under the cockpit sink...

    - sand toys. Shovels, buckets, etc. anything kid related goes here.

    Transom locker...

    - here I keep my fenders, my stern anchor, more line, my dinghy hand pump, dinghy gas tank. That may be it. Ryan, good luck getting that engine in there. I don't think it will fit.

    Under the stern seat I keep my dinghy motor and my pole/hook thingy. Where cooler belongs, I keep the generator and life jackets that match the number of people on board.

    I think that about does it. Oh yeah, I don't keep anything at all in the engine bay. Mainly because it's WAY to much of a PITA to get to. Especially with the carpet and the dinghy motor, etc.

    -John.

        Jim, I love the orange box in the engine bay. Great idea. I need to get me one of those. And what is this about storage under the aft bed? We have storage under the aft bed?

          It is the perfect size to store about 35 x 500 ml bottles of water, and it keeps them nice & cool!

          The storage area's lid would be about where your shoulders are when lying in bed.

            The next project I was going to do was to cut a piece of 1/2" plywood the exact shape of the v-berth, then hinge it on one side. I was either going to install a folding rod to hold it up, or a couple of lift-assist gas shocks.

            But then I had to sell the boat, so it never got done

            The area under the v-berth is H U G E , but a pain in the arse to get into.

                  Yeah, that is a good idea. I'm just not sure you could fit a piece of plywood that big down there. I guess it would have to be hinged in the middle in order to get it down there in the first place.

                  Can't wait to find this new storage spot under the aft bed! I wonder if I'll find any left over goodies from the PO. He left so much stuff on the boat it was like Xmas morning going through everything for the first time!

                        You really do need to explore your boat. There is storage space just about everywhere there is space available on the 3055/305.

                              I don't know if the 3055 has the storage under the aft bed.

                              On the 305 as mentioned it is at shoulder height if your head is to Starboard. It's not huge but any space is valued.
