Hi guys i need some info from you all.
I want to make a bait tank that sits really nice in the back well between my seat and the crate.
What would i use to do something like this?
Would i need to take a mould of the back well?
I hate it when i get somthin like this in my head :x because i know what i want and i know how i want it to look but the how to do it is a problem.

What i was thinking of doing is putting a divide in where i want the well to stop and then lining the well with a black bag or my son painting plastic mat, then using fiber glass to take a mould and then add as much glass as i need for it to be strong enough. then resin the inside and out to make it water proof.

If any of that does make sence just say my hands go faster them my brain sometimes.
But do you thing thats the best way to go or is the glass going to add to much weight to the yak or is there a easier way?

Any input would help heaps
Thanks Rik

Plano have some purpose designed bait tanks for kayaks and the like - I personally use the 700 version. The pictures are absolutly crap and don't show much off - but they are well worth the $30 they cost at BCF

They are basically a bucket with an inner bucket that removes (holds the bait fish), also have a secure lid.

The great thing about these bait tanks is that you can buy any container to use, so you can find a smaller bucket, or square plastic container to fit in your crate, or tankwell. Honestly, if you attach rod holders to your tank, there is no need for a crate. IMHO... 8)
