Intro: Dry Box (Kayak/ Boat/ Tubing)
Yeah so I got this great waterproof bag for my DSLR camera online. Now I can take my camera into the kayak without worries... or under water for that matter.
The only issue is I have no waterproof storage for a spare lens, my smart watch, my phone, keys.... etc...
My solution is this simple inexpensive box!
Plus if I flip it floats!
My kayak unfortunately is just not equipped.
Here's my fix.
Step 1: What You Need
Drill bits, drill, liquid safe tupperware (has waterproof gasket and locks), and a gate latch cable.
Note: Tupperware should be soft and flexable. Hard tupperware will usually crack.
Step 2: Match
Match a drill bit with the clip that comes on the gate latch cable.
Pick a spot on the lip of your container where it won't impede the gasket. Drill slowly.
Slip hook threw the drilled hole.
Step 4: Hook It
You can use some from of quick disconnect.... I just used parachord and looped it.
Step 5: Fill It Up
Pack it full... Close it up... Clip It on...
Step 6: Tuck and Go
Just hook it to your kayak and tuck it where you feel comfortable (I prefer easy access) and away you go...
