    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.
