I think the old saying that a boat is a hole in the water into which one throws money is off. It's a hole in the water into which one puts inventive ways to store things. Thanks for the idea.

I tried to duplicate this, but had trouble finding 5” pipe at Home Depot. I’m keeping my eyes open and will make a set when I find the correct pipe.

BTW, I get my filters by the case and they come individually sealed in plastic to minimize corrosion.
