    I started this last year and got it to a useable point. I finally put a lid on it this year! I plan on replacing the lid with something a little longer lasting, like marine plywood or some sort of thick non-wood material. I am also going to replace the livewell pump with a bilge pump. Where the pump sticks into the tub, I am going to put a drain in and put about 5'-10' of hose between the new bilge pump and the spray nozzle. This way I can just hang it in the water to fill the tank, then put it in the tank to recirculate the water. I also need a filter of some sort on the pump.

    looks good, I need a few more ideas to kick around and this will be added to my list.
     
  5. Simple and effective. Couldnt think of needing much more than that. Looks to me you did an awsome job and probably didnt spend much dough doing it.
