So there really aren't many built in storage locations on a Ride to keep things from getting wet without losing them inside the hull. So, I made my own. Went to walmart and picked up one of their dry storage containers in the camping section, some velcro from Home Depot, and an S carabiner. Now, I have a place to keep my wallet, keys, phone, and camera!

Clean. I always keep my phone and camera on my body. Camera (waterproof) on lanyard around my neck and dropped in shirt pocket and phone in other pocket. Still looking for a good way to keep phone tethered as I know the day will come that I drop it.

Man, that yak looks new. Has anyone ever caught a fish from it?

I somehow feel as if that last comment was a poke in the ribs frown

The yak has only been on the water 5 times, 2 of them with me, and I've yet to slime it.

I slimed mine on the third trip so don't feel bad. Third time's a charm.

That's a good idea man. I got a Lifeproof case for my phone so it's waterproof, I just keep it in a zippered pocket on my PFD (NRS Chinook, love that thing). My keys are in something like that but it's a small dry bag and I have to tie it to an eyelet on my yak and the rope sticks out of the hatch. Not ideal, your way is a lot cleaner.

For what I've been catching, it's about the proper size too. frown

I have two of those dry boxes tethered inside the center hatch between my legs on my T-120. Makes for really easy access to my phone, camera, keys and stuff.
