Kayak customizing suggestions wanted for recreational bare-bones 10 ft. sit inside boat. Answered

This new kayak has a seat, foot pegs, and cup holder. I would like ideas for installing a glove compartment container (similar to what a car has) inside of boat to hold personal protection items carried during my nature paddles on calm lakes & rivers. I have purchased a deck rigging kit, but have not decided on layout yet. What ingenious suggestions do YOU have?

I got a box that says it is water resistant I think it is made by plano and is for boating and what not.
I cut a hole in the back of my kayak (plastic pelican 8') and used wood and silicon to make the two meet.
I then screwed the wood to the boat and the box to the wood.
It has worked really well and holds alot. I also don't have to fit with hatch latches as this just has a toolbox latch to it.
the only time it has ever gotten water in it was when I completely rolled the kayak and it was upside down for about ten minutes.
I use the box to store a first aid kit and my anchor.
If you are interested in pictures of all of this send me a message after the 20th. I won't be near the boat until then.

Just make sure where ever you put it you can still get inside easily and out of it easily even in an emergency.
