Very nice! I like the white tub idea...reflects light better and easier to see "things" that may have been dropped. Did you paint it or manufactured that way?

i painted it with flex seal...other people recommend it but flex seal sucks for this. It chips and flakes - use Rustoleum ultra cover 2x instead

No pics yet but in the process of a few mods of FX 50 windbreak:

1) Moved the bench from the front to the rear for a shelf...perfect for heater.

2) Placed small triangle canvas chair where bench was, off-set to one side. Sitting further into shanty for added protection from elements.

3) Put shanty cover over top to help retain heat.

4) Used chair carry bag for drill/auger...fits nicely inside shack

5) Plenty of room for bucket w/ poles "attached" and locator.

6) Everything incl. shanty still less than 60#

7) Smitty Sled complete in about a week.

The shelf (bench seat) is attached 5" from back of tub putting front edge 1' from back of chair and 1.5" below top edge of tub. I used 1X2" cedar boards as "mounts" for shelf using 1.5" #10 machine screws to secure. Space enough around the area of shelf to place heater so as not to come in contact with anything. I won't put it directly behind chair though  :o I like this "3/4" shanty because it is light and don't really like to be closed up tight. Not because of claustrophobia or anything...just like to look outside.

Nice, I might do that to mine. I took it with me today but never took it out of the car. I found 4" of ice but forgot my Cleats and it was a clear ice day no snow on top. I did drill 2 holes to verify the thickness. I also found 2" on another lake also. I should be on the ice next week sometime.

Thanks! Just put them on so they are yet to be tested in the snow. Held up well dragging it around the grass so far.

That is very cool. How did you work the cross bar to keep it up?
