Where do you store your stuff?

So I just bought a Mako 18 LTS. It has plenty of space to keep larger items like an anchor, life jackets, and my wife's five gallon Luggable Loo stored away. But apparently the designers never go aboard a boat with cell phones, small tackle box, or other small items that one likes to keep handy.



I bought a small cabin bag to mount inside the console hatch door, but that's far from ideal. Would really appreciate other storage ideas, especially innovative things you've made yourself. Pics a plus.


TIA

I probably should add that I have no qualms about drilling or cutting fiberglass if that's what it takes to have a usable boat. I was drilling into this thing within five minutes of getting it home to mount the side cleats that Mako decided weren't necessary. Thought about installing something like a glove box but there is literally no space on the console for one.

When I take my 19'6 whaler wade fishing with some buddy's.. LOL... we've got gear all over the place. Mostly use those Colored plasticoated twist ties by NiteIze that you can get at HomeDepot to keep it all together and attached to the front cooler rack. They do the job with several peoples wading gear in the boat. Roll Top Dry Bags also do a good job of keeping jackets both dry and grease free, but some will leak over time so don't leave them stored like that.

For small personal items things like phones, keys, wallet, charger, eyeglass case, etc, I use 13L lightweight roll top drybag. It keeps things dry, easy to carry, and I can clip it to things with a carabiner clip.

For larger items (or many small items) I want to keep dry, I use a waterproof roll top duffel bag made by Sak Gear called the DuffelSak. I hate how boat spray soaks bags, things get wet inside, and zippers get crusty from the salt. This bag can take a lot of boat spray and everything stays dry. High quality and durable. I love my DuffelSak.

I must have picked these up a dozen times thinking they must be good for something, but couldn't think of what.

For the stuff you absolutely do not want to lose or get wet. Like keys, wallets, pistols, & cell phones. It's got a seal built into the lid. Mine is ten years old and still in good shape. I keep it under the helm on my SS. If it blows out it will float.

I use a bike handlebar bag, velcro straps you can put on any grab rail.
