This is the story of some great guys who while building boats needed a cool box that also had a function with the lack of space on a boat. If you could not stand on it and you were going for a big catch then you were likely to break it.

SOme good incite into the way they grew it small for themselves then saved of taking investment until later and the grass roots valued and respected the great bit of kit.

Number 2 - Calculating ROI in the Machine Shop!
