Skipjack Deck Boxs

I was at Minnies yacht surplus in CosteMesa today and spotted these nice Skipjack deck coolers/boxes. They have a inner liner and drain and are strong enough to stand on. Years ago I asked Jack Cole to make me one but the molds were no longer available, I ended up building one from casts of the one I had. These hardly ever come up for sale, a steal at 95 bucks each.

Cheers, Don

I got one of those with the donor skipjack flybridge that I stripped for parts and took to the dump. My 6 year old went to town rubbing it out and waxing it with a power buffer and sold it on craigslist for some lego cash.

Now I know why it flew so fast at $40.

I had one of those in my 1979 Skipjack 24 flybridge and it was very handy for smaller fish, beer, etc. I had it cut and hinged so that the front section could be lifted without picking up the entire lid.
