As I work on winter raft projects my drybox came to mind. I am often dragging mine in the garage, truck bed, river bank, etc. This can't be good for the longevity of the aluminum. What have you done to the bottom of your box for protection. Foam, risers, powder coat, rattle can, ignore...?

Ignore, then have the seams re-welded if/when they break open (saw it after ~8-10 years of commercial use). Foam will get ripped up. I've seen a thin sheet of plywood glued onto boxes, but it seems like more weight / hassle than it's worth.

If you get a major gouge a welding shop can usually fill the material and grind down for the minimum labor charge.
