Leaning Post | Boat Outfitters

Boat Outfitters is now offering Integrated Tackle Storage Units into their line of Boat Leaning Posts.

If you have ever needed more storage space in your boat but just can’t figure out where to get those extra couple of inches of space here is a great idea from Boat Outfitters. They are making custom tackle storage units that integrate into most leaning posts.

Most boaters with a open center console boat have some form of leaning post. The benefits of a leaning post are obvious when it comes to comfort and relief of standing all day or running in rough water. Now you can enjoy added storage beneath your exiting or new leaning post.

While many leaning posts do come with rod holders and some already come equipped with a dry box under the seat portion of the leaning post however Boat Outfitters took this concept to another plateau with their integrated custom tackle storage units.

Leaning Post Tackle Storage | Boat OutfittersTheir Leaning Post Tackle Unit – 4 Tray with Storage fits nicely underneath most common leaning posts. This unit boasts 3 built-in storage units, 4 built-in tackle trays, and an open storage bin for catching everything else that needs a place.

The tackle storage unit measures 15 ¾” tall x 29 1/2 “ “ wide x 18 ¼” deep. The minimum required depth to slide the unit under your leaning post is 18 ¼”. The unit is made from high quality King Starboard plastic and stainless steel hardware. It is available in all standard King Starboard colors, White/White, Artic White and Seafoam. Please note some color variations may exist.  To confirm your colors you may order a sample color chain from Boat Outfitters here > King Starboard Color Chain.

Another of the most popular tackle units is the Leaning Post Tackle Unit, Item # 13770-50461. This unit features (4) 3730 Plano Tackle Trays, lift-off leader holder, pull out lure rack, and pull out cutting board. For added storage you get 3 deep drawers, and an upper catch-all area with retainer lip. The pull out cutting board is a great feature when used with your bait station. As with all of our custom tackle units this model is also built with King Starboard marine plastic and high quality stainless steel hardware.Boat Outfitters | Leaning Post Tackle Storage

Boat Outfitters,
I am looking for an integrated tackle storage cum bait table for my Boston Whaler 235 Conquest (2005) . Do you have anything to offer that fits in the stern?

Hey Malcolm,

Thanks for your interest! I am sure that we have something, or can make something, to fit your application. I will follow up with you in more detail in an e-mail. Have a good one!

I’m looking into replacing my leaning post and I need additional storage. It is for a 2003 24′ Robalo (R230). I am interested in either the leaning post 4 tray with storage or the leaning post tackle unit. I assume both need frame bottom of the existing leaning post. My existing leaning post has a rounded post at bottom. If I need to replace the leaning post which post do you recommend? Also, it appears there is space below the 4 tray unit. Is there space for a shallow bait cooler underneath?
