Q) What is the fish box made of ?
Single skin hand laid FRP fibreglass with high gloss exterior and textured composite finish inside.All boxes are white in colour on the inside. The lid/cutting board is UV treated polyethylene which is also of food grade standard.The lock down gear compartment in the cutting board has ample storage room.
Q) What are the rod holders and fittings made of?
The four rod holders, three ratchet buckles and eye nuts and attaching nuts/ bolts etc are all marine (316) grade stainless steel. The tie down webbing is high grade polyester.The base matting is dense foam pre- cut to size to fit under the base of the box.
Q) Do I have to drill any holes in my ski to fit my whitey box?
Absolutely not. The unit is held firmly in place using three ratchet tie downs allowing the box to be fitted/ removed in less than two minutes with no indication there has been any attachments on the back of the ski.
Q) Will the rod holders tear out?
No, not under usage at sea or in the estuary.Apart from each rod holder having 4 mounting bolts secured through the box, any large fish you hook will do one of two things- a) tow the ski around or b) sink the ski if the fish is that big and the drag on the reel is locked to maximum!
Q) I go out to sea chasing the big ones, will the whiteybox hang in there OK?
Yes.The fittings we use are all over specified in terms of breaking strain etc and we have sold hundreds of these units in both Australia and overseas with not one occasion of the box going astray when properly fitted and in use.
Q) What maintenance do I need to do to maintain my Whiteybox?
Just wash it using fresh water and a car wash or similar, no different to washing the ski after use.The same applies to the inside of the box and by hosing out any left overs though the removed bung.The unit is best stored under cover with the tie downs eased off.
