Fishing boats often take their worst beating during the storage season,
when slow time and harsh weather have the chance to gang up on the boat,
motor and trailer. Winter does not damage all boats, only those that
have been put away improperly.
When you are done hunting, fishing or four wheeling and you want to clean up the interior all you have to do is, take the Husky Liners out and rinse them off at your driveway or local car wash . If you are planning a night on the town or taking the family to church on Sunday the interior of the SUV or truck will be clean and free of the odors.
It’s a good strategy to empty your boat and store all your equipment indoors. Especially make sure to bring in cushions and boat seats; if you don’t mice and other animals may use the stuffing from them for food or nests. Bring in your fishing tackle too, so you can clean and organize it, a nice project for a winter’s nights.
One item that I use extensively that makes my life easier and is the Dee Zee aluminum boxes. They are constructed of heavy-duty Mill Finish Aluminum that is welded for superior strength and performance. The Mill Finish Storage Boxes are included in a line of heavy duty truck accessories all under the label of Diamond Brite.
Dee Zee has incorporated a new molded channel, which is formed directly from the box panels. These panels are welded together forming a solid, single piece design for years of trouble free service. Around their new channel is a one-piece neoprene bulb seal, which keeps the elements out and the contents of the boxes dry. Locking stainless steel T-latches are used to ensure the safety and security of my contents.
Inside one of these boxes I carry spare line and reels. Now it is time to take these items out and put them in my winter survival kit. The survival kit has candles, matches, coffee can, energy bar, flares, flashlight etc.
I might also, in another box, carry rope, duct tape, pliers, tools etc. The boxes are arranged in the topper bed of my truck so that when I am traveling this winter I will have all these things at my fingertips.
I want to protect the outside of my truck from the environment as well. I have installed chrome running boards, stainless steel grill guards and tail light guards, to keep rocks, and animals out of my grill and away from my lights.
