      A:

      I would go with the 36x16x16. You should have plenty of room in the frame and you get more space in the box. The top is also wider which makes it a more comfortable seat if you choose to use it as one. Hope that helps.

      A:

      There's 45" between the tubes, so either of our stock dry boxes will fit. The 36" x 16" x 16" size has a larger volume. Eddy Out can make custom sizes if you want to max out the size of the box. Give us a call, 800.635.5202, to discuss custom options.

    Q:

    This is a request instead of a question: if you put spots for a lock or two, you could likely get this qualified as bear-proof, opening up the market for these boxes to a whole new audience (like me). Also, I'd get one of these if it were shorter (24"?) so it was more portable.

      I think it is a good idea and possible. It would need to be modified and
      tested. There are folks at Sequoia NP and Yosemite NP that can provide the
      standards required and the organizations that do the official testing.
      Good luck!!

      Doubt they be bear proof. They are tin cans. Find a local welding shop they
      can usually build one a little cheaper. Look up Montana Raft Frames.

      A:

      Even without the locks this case is bear resistant and would be bear proof with only slight modification (addition of 2 hasps). The model I own (no modification), survived seventeen days on the Kanektok with daily Grizzly encounters. The watertight seal is actually air tight. Therefore no tasty scent gets out to attract curious Grizzly. Keep the box's exterior and foam seal clean and free of food residue.

    Q:

    Do you sell the lid seal separately for dry boxes? If not, do you have recommendation on where I can find a product comparable to the original? The seal on box was damaged, I replaced it with a foam type seal and it continues to leak.

    Thanks,

      Josh, the replacement gasket is Item # 3070.2. It's the same material as the original gasket and is self adhesive. They are in stock.

    Q:

    Will the 36" inch box fit in a NRS E-130 raft? I know it depends on the frame but the specs for the boat is 37 inches wide and I just wonder if 1 inch between the sides of the tubes is enough.

      A:

      I am not familiar with the specs of the E-130 raft, but you need to account
      for the diameter of aluminum frame if you are going to have one. My box
      fit in my raft, but the cooler did not and I turned both sideways and added
      an extra tube to the frame in the back splitting the rear compartment area
      behind the seat in half (tube ran bow to stern direction) to drop them in
      side by side.

      A:

      This box should be fine in an E-130. If the box is centered it won't rub the tubes. If in the course of use you do get some wear it's a simple thing to glue in a wear patch.

      I have a NRS. E 13.6. The inside specs are almost the same. This 36inch box fits great in my self made frame, and the boat. Your boat should have 38 inches inside.

      A:

      I have a Sotar Strike that I put the 36" box into. The Strike is only 34"
      wide. It's tight but it most definitely fits. I have welded mounting
      brackets onto the box so it rests on my frame and not on the floor of the
      raft. There are about a dozen of us here in Missoula Montana that have
      this set up and as of yet no one has had any issues. Hope this helps

          A perfect addition to our raft. We did an overnighter on the Colorado and it had plenty of room to hold our essential gear that had to stay dry. Also makes a great place for our dog to lie down as we float the river.
