Snake skin kayak crate.
« on: June 13, 2016, 10:02:06 PM »
Putting out the garbage the other day. I noticed my neighbours threw out a crate. So I soaked it in bleach and hosed it down. Decided I needed another kayak crate. So off to sail and Home Depot I went. After picking up a few odds and ends I was ready to build.
-snake skin duck tape. $5
-assorted conduit clamps. $15
-rod holder. $15
-shock cord. Free
-nuts and bolts. Free
-umbrella holder. Free
All the free stuff was found around the house/workshop. Crate size, h10.5-w13.5-l18inches. Large enough for 7 plano boxes. I usually only carry three hence the shock cord retainer. Umbrella holder will be used to hold my flag. And there is enough conduit clamps to leash all my gear and then some. Conduit clamps will also be used to hold tools. And to help anchor the crate to my kayak. Shock cord to help hold tackle boxes in place. And across the top to help keep stuff in. The snake skin tape is for sex appeal. Now I just need to buy a sexy speedo to match. ;D

Thanks. The conduit clamps are a great idea. I'm going to make some mods to my crate.

Great job. Im wondering what kind of crate that is. Clearly not a milkcrate and looks a hell of alot better. Maybe could get a lid that fits that crate for guys who want top closed off. And the thicker quality resin.
