Trying to figure out how to securely hold the box in so it wont come off in a roll over. Ive seen a pic here for using hooks on the box and the stock bungee, seems I saw putting eyes on the ends and using a clip of some sort too, but cant find that pic again. What do you do?

a pad eye on each side of the plano box about 2/3 of the way up and use clips (carabiner or similar) to attach it the the bungee pad eye.

I'll add my experience. I put 4 PVC tubes on the back of the plano as rod/net holders. In bouncy conditions, the weight of the rods would cause the box to flip over, rotating on the two side clips. I had to add two padeyes to the back deck of my T140 to stabilize it. It is rock solid now though, even with 4 seabass rods on it. I used brass clips.

the T13 has a plano designed spot for the box. not sure tipping will be an issue. but for sure with other boats. I had some similar issues when i used it on the revo

A bungee won't hold it in place in a surf rollover. Use double brass clips one on each side.

Yeah, the tarpon i have is totally flat in the tankwell. If there was a recess for the box then it wouldn't flip. yet another way my yak is showing its age :smt003

I used these in each corner of the box with a bungee threaded thru.

 

Utilized the clips I had gotten from somewhere else...





Works pretty good. A little bit of trouble getting the clip off the pad eye on my T-15.... But it will not come out ina roll-over,  full of gear and 3 rods in the holders  :smt003

When I first started this madness I read on here from someone that you should be able to lift your boat by your box/crate/bucket and not have it  move much. After learning first hand that sagging gear in a surf yard sale is a huge PITA (and dangerous)I took that advice and ditched my bungies.  I use the Plano with the one handed clips and crabbing I use a crate with a five gallon bucket inside all tightly clipped. Bucket has tight lid with tether for the trips back in thru the surf. Don't laugh, it has saved my dinner a few times, OK, maybe I suck at surf landings but shit happens to us all.

I think we need pix on this thread. 

Here are a couple pictures of my plano box setups-

Two setups
1st - Without space behind the seat
2nd- Space behind the seat for anchor rope

Last picture is the type of clip I used- (Lowes carries them for about $2.50 ea.)
