Dry Skid

This is a very easy Project and a great one to get your feet wet or keep your stuff dry!!!
Under the aft dinette seat there is a Dry Skid...or in my case a dry-rotted skid.  It looks like a small pallet.  As there is often a little water in the bilge the Dry Skid keeps stored items raised up out of the water.
As I mentioned, mine had rotted, so using the old parts as templates I fashioned a new Dry Skid out of scraps of oak flooring.  Then, rather than varnish and then have to keep constant vigil on it, I opted to Epoxy over the entire Dry Skid.  It is now maintenance free and keeping my tool bag among other things out of the bilge water.
