20/30mm rocketboxes- actual dimensions???
So I'm in the process of rigging out my boat. I'm trying to figure out frame bay sizes based on dimensions of rocket boxes.
Unfortunately the dimensions I'm finding on various online surplus stores are widely varied.
I guess some people are measuring the footprint, even tho the lid is bigger, and the handles both on the ends and top add a little bit too...
And there's not a surplus store in 100 miles from me that has any in stock for me to go and measure.
-From the best I can gather, both sizes require a bay opening of approx. 19 inches??(based on DRE making flip seats for 19.5 inch bays")
So maybe even 18.5in?? But don't the end handles take up a little space, even when folded down??
-Height at approx. 14 inches?? With the top handle maybe 14.5-15??
I'm gonna try to get a custom dry box made, and I want to have these 2 dimensions match the rocketboxes perfectly, making a good fit in the bay, and a level space on top to lash down a table....
-What about width, is that the only dimension that's different between 20mm and 30mm?? Somewhere around 8inch or so, vs. 9-10inch??
I'm hoping someone out there has truly accurate measurements of 20mm and hopefully 30mm boxes!
Thanks in advance for any and all advise!!!
