I built a plywood gun box for my 1860 Grizzly. I have a flat plywood floor in my boat so this made it easy. Hinged the lid. Put two 2x4's across the top of inside and cut notches in them for guns plus it made box sturdy. Lightweight 2x frame.When you put guns in ,you have a lot of storage area underneath. It is 8' long and I made the front flat and back on an angle to match boat side somewhat, this just made the inside a little larger. Screwed 2x2 pieces on the sides and front and drill some holes in them to make shell holders. Put hasp lock on it. Camo paint. Makes a great seat. I keep rods in it during summer. It is now 10 yrs old and sturdy as the day I made it.
