Yeah, the slots in the lid works awesome for a raft garbage can. I also drill holes in the bottom so it drains. You throw your raft day garbage in your hand wash system? Seems like a sanitation issue in the making to me unless your real careful about cleaning it before deploying it at camp. Thinking about it I quess beer cans and such maybe OK but snoty kleenex or something nasty not so much.

It could. Usually beer cans, maybe some left over lunch, and a candy bar wrapper.

Table

Here is a photo of a table we use under the captain's set on our cat frames. I have sewn a bag into the frame, then set the table on top. The hole allows access but doesn't effect the usefullness of the table. I also made an aluminum plate that fits the hole, and has a hole in it that i set burner in and hook the extra hose off of the propane tree and it give us an extra burner. I tie the legs up so that the don't fall into the bag. we call it the 'front hold' and put stuff in that doesn't matter if it gets wet. The notches on the sides allow the chair brackets to reach the tubes.

Here is my DIY hand wash station. Everything was purchased at my local hardware store.

I'm more interested in the pulley system to the garage for the guy who posted the table shots.

Soft Materials Supplier

I recently found Rockywoods Fabric, and really like what I saw. I am working on some zipper repairs and making a duffle for my dining canopy, so got a bunch of zipper cars, some cordura, thread and some ripstop.

They do free pickups if you come by, located in Loveland Colorado.

This is a valve adapter that I made for a cheap Harbor Freight 12v air compressor, to help me fill up my SUPs. I use the 12v Coleman blower 1st to get the bulk of the air in, then use this to finish the job. It is still not very fast, but it beats doing it myself, and frees me up to work on other things.

And here is the boat hanger I made to store duckies in the garage. I have 2, the other one has a partially inflated tandem on it. I use a block and tackle to facilitate hanging, though I need to rework it because the friction is currently making it really tough to lift.

Great thread BTW.

Hoist

I store all my (and several friends) boats overhead in my shop. I use a hoist from Harbor Freight (second one, first one burned out, over use) to lift everything up. My Granddad had a slaughter house on his farm, and I appropriated a couple of the meat hooks, then made rail out of angle iron and fastened it to the purlins. Platform is a piece of 3/4 plywood
