I hate frame tabs.

Mass produce a box the same size as a 20 mm ammo can. The lid should not be attached (i.e. should come off completely when opened). If you could make these for less then $75, I bet you could sell a boat load (no pun intended)

Like Shap just said...skip the hinges altogether. Think York box, but metal. I do love my York, but the plastic will crack someday.

Having a bigger boat (16') I would love to have a box that was actually bigger than the rest. A 44" box would fit nicely in my boat. I often find that the tabs are set too low for my boat as well. I have about 16" between the frame and the floor so the normal 9-12" below the tabs isn't ideal for a bigger boat. I'm sure that my boat is the exception rather than the rule though. Most folfs are running 14'ers so from a business standpoint it makes sense to cater to their needs. Would love a killer deal on a custom one though!
