Navy Dry Boxes

There is currently a "Navy Reusable container for shipping and storage" in the classified section. Does anyone have any experience with these type of containers? They look appealing: mass produced by the military, built to rugged mil-spec reqs, roto-molded plastic, etc. However, I have seen many more custom welded aluminum dry boxes on the river. Can anyone shed some insight?

I can only find sites like this, not something that'd sell individual units:
13414 Modular Reusable Containers and Cases for Major Repairables Goodwin Robbins


Thanks,

Jason

I have one. Got it at a garage sale for $10. It's an odd size so doesn't fit in a typical drybox "bay" on most frames. I put it on a hanging deck in the back of a bucket boat and it worked fine. Packed the firepan and water jugs around it with bags on top. We used it for dry food mostly, then for garbage. Not pretty but very dry and functional. If the dimensions work for your rig, it would be cheap dry storage.
