i am making a tackle box for my friends 21st birthday and have come up with a nice compact design which incorporates swinging tills, common in most tackle boxes. i am having trouble, however, in the following areas and are wondering if any of you good folk can help me out.
1. I dont know what material to use. it has to be light, yet take abuse of being knocked over in a boat etc and will proabably be sitting on wet sand when it is in use on the beach.
2. What finish is good for marine purposes?
3. Is there any product that repels rust particularly well? i am thinking that hinges etc will rust easily.
thanks looking forward to any feedback
