  • Underfish box clearance - 28's

    I'm obsessed with my fishboxes

    Anyone have either measurements or a suggestion on how to measure the open space between the bottom of the fishboxes and the hull?

    My 100 gallon bladder is 53" long, a few inches too long to go into a fixbox when emptied; but which could possibly be stowed under the fishbox for the remainder of the trip. It rolls up into a roughly 1' in diameter cylinder which I think I should be able to wedge and secure in there somehow.

    Buy the 35cc. This will solve your problem.

      Daughter #1 is a senior in college next year; daughter #2 is a freshman. There is no #3.

      I am sure you are all aware that the cost of 2 private college educations can buy a fully loaded 35 and leave change for some nice tackle also

        Well since were not splurging then my guess would be there won't be a problem with your bladder underneath the fishbox. I think you would have clearance under the box on the water seperator side. Just kidding about the 35, fyi I bought my boat used last year and I inherited the name Petty Cash. My wife wanted me to change it when I bought it but I thought the guy spent so much money on the gold letters so I kept it. After one year my wife told me you should rename your boat. I said to what? "Out of Cash"

          Backman,
          Drop it in there, if the fish boxes go back in and fit flush, then it fits, eh?

            Don't think it will fit under; if the gear clamp on the discharge hose is facing downward it will hit the bilge floor (outboard side) You may be able to mount a few pad eyes on the outboard stringer and bungee cord the bladder on the outboard side of the box between the box & outboard stringers.

            Also, not sure how "clean" the bladder is when empty but I am sure there is room in the engine room centerline somewhere, weather it be on the plywood hatch you stand on for service or bungee corded to the underside of the hatch itself. Only issue I see with engine room storage; it would be a PIA to store it.
