That is a good price for a fiberglass dock box. Still, Amazon has a plastic one for under $70. I've been thinking about a new one for my sundeck, but I think I'd rather use the $230 difference for some other priority.
If that $70 Amazon one is plastic.... pretty flimsy as I just got one.

Great for lines and life jackets, but my heavy tackle box and mast winch battery are challenging its practicality for my application.

Otherwise for $70, keeps clutter out of sight just fine. Barely a weathetight lid though.

My marina doesn't allow plastic dock boxes.

I like buying used stuff for my used boat.
Paid $75 for this nice fiberglass one that fits well on my aft deck.

I agree!! Anything shiny would just look out of place!

You're wrong. Get to know us and you won't feel that way.

Right about what? I'm assuming no one is taking any of this stuff seriously, right?

It is even better in person! The hardware is all stainless steel. Iím very happy with it and I love that it is low profile. Iím VERY picky. My lettering guy is doing it today to match the letters on the boat. If you donít like this dock box, I would be shocked!

That is a nice dock box for the $$.

I have no footprint for such a box, as I am at the end of the pier.

So I converted my old dead boat 'fridge to a dock box, put a wood "deck" on top for a work surface, added a hasp and lock. Ten bucks total. It's a vertical dock box instead of a horizontal one.

I put stickers on the door from our various trips, harbor master has not run me off yet!

Oh I'm sure I will. I'm not particularly picky, but get pretty tired of the plastic ones.

You are correct about the price of the glass boxes. I was looking at a couple at WM and was shocked at the price.

By the way, I didn't think pointing out a product that you have tried and were happy with as spam.

I think it would be helpful if spam was defined by the moderators. Please point it out if it already has.

Cheers!

Received mine today. good looking piece, other than that the knuckleheads sent me the wrong color. I'll live with it because of the hassle of returning it, but its not what I ordered.
