I apologize to whichever Facebook friend showed me how the Ridgid 22-inch Pro Box can become an extra-wide kayak crate. I can’t find his name, but it’s a great idea. Instead of a hinged lid, I borrowed a Frabill innovation on one of their crates and employed elastic cord to keep things accessible, yet inside the crate if I capsize. I also securely zip-tied a Sea-Dog triple rod holder to the crate’s back. The whole project cost just over $40.
