Happy with my new Xactics - I want to mount rod holders on either end. Befoer I start - Will 1/2" #8 screws sealed with 4200 harm anything?

Thru bolt and silicone it, going on 10 years with this setup and no problems.

I'm in the same boat. Need to add rodholders and a cutting board.

Since rodholders are covered, anyone have a good design for a cutting board? Maybe with removable sides to make cutting chunks easier for two people?

My friend is ripping a couple starboard shims that will sit inside the two raised parts on the lid. He is then going to bond it to a piece of starboard the size ( I think ) of the lid. The end result will be. Removable cutting board that should lock in place on top of the lid.

When done I can post a picture but he plan is the same, space for a couple guys to be cutting at once on either end of the box.
