Nice, but how heavy is it?  How is it in the wind?  All you need is an engine, and you can fly around from lake to lake.

Wheres the roll of toilet paper? ;D Just kidding, nice job!

Hey......that's a good idea! I could mount the toilet roll holder under the bench and hinge the bench to the bucket ;D 

Thanks for the complement, I thought it turned out pretty sweet

I just put on my digital fish scale and it's 18.3 lb Doesn't feel it but probably because of lifting it by both handles. I have yet to take it out on the ice but will be this Saturday. It seems very stable just sitting in my house without the bail pail in the 6 gallon bucket. Having that inside I'm sure help holding everything down. In heavy winds? I'm sure I'll be getting up slow the first few times just in case. Maybe next year I'll mount the bucket to a riding mover deck :P ;D

Oh you're funny kenman ;D I'll remember that while I'm leaning back and slaying them next time out or maybe next time were're giving out NH dirt naps ;)

It is kinda long big but having a sled makes things nice. Besides, if it is too much I can always bring it back to the shop and chop it down some ;)

Have you though about enclosing your otter sled, and using your bucket jig bench for a lid?

If you would mount the rod holders on the bottom side you would have more room up top for tackle,beverages
maps,Etc.
