The open waters are an amazing thing. They hold the promise of new discoveries and new adventures. But what many people aren’t prepared for is just how many new experiences are to be found when preparing for those trips off of land. For example, even just finding a way to store one’s possessions when going onto or off a boat or ship can be an adventure.
For example, many people assume that they’ll need to keep all of their possessions on them when making that transition. It’s not something people really give much thought to at first. But the more one does it the more worries start to accumulate. There’s often just too much chance of loss or damage on the water. And likewise, the idea of having to ferry items from one’s vessel to home all the time can prove tiresome. This is why dock boxes have become so popular. There’s a lot to explore in the various dock box options.
Standard dock boxes can be best described as a secured box which sits on a dock. One shouldn’t confuse this being a base option with it being in any way inferior to the other options though. It’s not at all unusual for this to legitimately be the best fit for someone’s needs. The main differences come more from size and orientation.
For example, slim dock boxes are designed to maximize space usage by acting as seating. This way one has the stability and waterproofing of a fiberglass dock box. But it also won’t take away valuable space. There’s always going to be a need for seating of one type or another. And if one needs storage space then this is a perfect match for one’s needs.
The idea of maximizing space utilization can be seen with the other size options as well. This is where the majority of other variation comes from. The more premium options extend up to 24×24. With lengths ranging from four to eight feet. Though some options such as the corner series come in 3′ and 4′ sizes. These are primarily aimed at maximizing space utilization over almost any other concern.
One should also keep that previously mentioned sense of exploration in mind. The fiberglass dock box uses construction methods which strengthen it against most rough weather conditions. And likewise it will hold up to more than open waters.
For example, some people have gotten so much use out of their dock box that they’ve repurposed it as a pool storage system. Others use it in their garages or backyards. One of the interesting things about the latter is that they can easily hold up against almost any type of irrigation system. Thus one can have drip based irrigation systems, sprinklers or anything else while keeping one’s supplies dry in the dock box.
And the fiberglass construction means that the yard safety goes both ways. Nobody would want a dock box to contaminate the open waters. And this holds true for keeping any corrosion away from one’s yard. The fiberglass construction means that a dock box is non-corrosive in general. As such it will protect its contents from the rough elements of the world. But it won’t add any contaminants to the world. It’s essentially keeping inside and outside safe and untouched.
Some of the boxes can even be stacked. This can allow one to essentially build upward in order to save more space. Storage space is usually counted on the basis of how much dry area is taken by it. But a small total space can be used while maximizing it by pushing upward rather than side to side.
