We have one. Haven't had any problems with it. It has not spent time underwater, but wet and wild rivers it has shined.
Ours has ethafoam glued to the top. I have to reapply glue every year at the corners. No biggy.

I just bought 3 of their dry boxes, the fit finish is excellent and they are absolutely water proof when submersed, unlike the Recretec box I bought from NRS. I dont think AAA makes their boxes, they are made by Cambridge Frameworks. Bottom line they are the best boxes Ive seen to date.

Are they shoebox design or the other type when it comes to the lid?

They are the "shoebox" type with a bulb gasket.

I have a big dry box and the captain boxes made for me by AAA, nothing bad to say about it. My custom size got messed up, but I made it work since AAA wouldn't redo it to my specs (1/2" off).

All boxes have been under water swimming Skull and Bowling alley on Westy. About 20 minutes submerged and everything came up dry, about 2 tea spoons of water got into one of the boxes.
