Good idea to mount the radio out of the weather. I’d test it. Pour a small amount of water on the front of the dash and see what it does. Might need a drip edge over it. Just a thought.
You never have enough storage space. Good idea on that too.
Glad to see your still here and sharing your upgrades and thoughts.

I heard about that. Seems a little silly to me. In Indiana boating, fishing, and other such activities have been deemed "essential". Although they have closed the campgrounds, the state parks are still open.

:D I thought about adding old car stereo to "Chug" but thought if enclosed,I might have condensation problems.Maybe an old enclosed one for old tractor would fit in with the interior decor. :lol:

Maybe add a plastic sheet "drip shield" over the top of the radio under the deck?

That's clever! However, I'm not that worried about it and don't own any Tupperware. :lol:

I went to Freeman twice last week. It's fairly close to home. When it gets busy it's not fun there at all. With everything fun closed the lakes might get crazy this year. Your skiff might be good on the Wabash river.

My dad goes to Racoon and has been there already this year.

My mom gave me some Tupperware back when I was a bachelor. Now that I'm married she's taken it all back.

All of my bachelor "Tupperware" said "Cool Whip" on the lid. I'm not sure that would be weatherproof! 😁

Here's the wood version. The two small holes are for 12v and USB power outlets. I'll add the storage boxes and encapsulate. For now, everything is wired up and working.

Looking really good Matt. Those areas between the frames are just begging to be used for something. I'm still working out how I want to use them on mine. I like that lower box look. And it neatly solves a speaker location issue.

Looks great Matt. Have you considered adding a fiddle rail on top of the box so you could use that space too? Tom
