What do you put in your drybox?

Why bother with a dry box and not just use dry bags? When you open your dry box and look in, what do you see?

I keep my kitchen, dry food and odd shaped stuff that don't fit well in drybags. A friend of mine used to keep sleeping bags in his, which seemed like quite a waste since you could easily drybag those and carry them up. When I don't have a kitchen, I tend to pack it with anything I feel like throwing in there.

I've only ever had NRS' old yellow York box (replaced by the gray/orange boxes). It usually carried stuff that always stayed with the boat: my repair kit, sunscreen, spare oarlock, some straps, and a knife/cutting board.

And for the day: Potato chips and sandwiches. Everything else goes in drybags.

I carry two dry boxes one is all kitchen gear and one is more kitchen gear and bread like products (usually). A couple trips to boat and kitchen gear is unloaded ready to set up and feed an army. They are great to sit on when in the boat or mount seats on. They are easy to repack after each meal to keep the mice, dust or droppings (from above) away from cooking or eating utensils overnight. One of my kitchen dry boxes has legs so it is counter top height to work from. is offline   Reply With Quote

I don't keep MEK, toluene, glue, bug spray or other toxic stuff in the same box with my food if there is a chance the food could become contaminated
Real adventure is only one bad decision away.
