    For the same price, about $50 from Home Depot, the bigger 50 gallon box fits 2 full sets of gear (both mine and my wife’s) including 2 drysuits and undergarments, 2 backplates and wings, 4 masks in cases, 2 pairs jet fins, tool box, lights, etc.


    We only use it for beach diving and ferry trips to the Avalon Dive Park. When on charter boats we each load our miscellaneous gear (masks, lights, gloves, hoods, weights, lights, computer, etc) from the larger husky box into small milk crates that fit under the bench. And our harness, wings and regs are put together on the tanks and put in our dive stations. The BIG box is left in the car till we get back so that we can throw all the wet gear in it and drive home.

    Haha thanks TURSIOPS! I agree though, too many people are not considerate or possibly just obliviou to their surroundings and lug massive bags and boxes on charter boats.

    *DISCLAIMER* If reading this thread and considering using large dive boxes and bags, have a smaller alternative for smaller charter boats with limited space.
