      Yours is the most elaborate, well-engineered storage box I've ever seen.

      I HATE YOU!!

      You Cabinet Maker, you! See you on the field-of-battle in a bit over a week from now. And please, for the love of God, don't park your storage-transportation box anywhere near mine or I'll set the thing on fire when you're not looking!

      WOW, two most awesome compliments! Thank you David and Steve!

            • The real Cabinetmaker at this site is Ken Druze. I just slap these things together. His are functional masterworks in themselves.

                • That is a lot of foam shaping. That is why I only had three foam retainers. But I have a stand that helps. My boxes are painted, will post pictures tomorrow.

                  • Not as tidy or well ventilated as David's.

                    • Update on my transport boxes. Painted and ready to go for Subfest. Two coats of paint. The Marlin box is 16" high and 16 pounds. The Skipjack box is 14" high and 15 pounds. Both are 50" long and 10" wide.

                      • Nice quality craftsmanship on those boxes Ken!

                        You and David are certainly prepared for the Sunfest!

                        • I’ll just slum it with a stand. I’m not handy with wood.

                          • David,

                            Thanks for posting the photo's of your submarine transport boxes construction.

                            What thickness foam are you using? From the photo's I'm guessing it is around 1" thick.
