Waterfront or poolside, dock boxes make convenient places to sit, but few are designed to withstand the weight of even a child without causing stress cracks. Better Way Products’ premium 500ST and 600ST Seat Top models are engineered for that very purpose. They have a reinforced, self-draining lid with a comfortable molded-in backrest and are built to withstand repeated adult use.

Better Way Products boxes are made to last. Manufactured in the USA from heavy-duty, sandwich-core fiberglass, they have unsurpassed strength. A unique process provides a smooth interior that’s free from the irritating strands common with lesser containers. Easy to clean, the exterior is glossy UV-resistant gelcoat available in white, gray or tan. High-quality gas lifts provide years of trouble-free use. The full-length piano hinge, cable stays and lockable hasp are all rust-resistant, and attached with oversized rivets.

The 500ST has an interior volume of 17.47 cu. ft. It measures 50” L x 29” W x 29” H and weighs 75 lbs. With a volume of 26.20 cu. ft., Better Way Products’ 600ST is 72” L x 29” W x 29” H and weighs 90 lbs. They cost $784 and $1,066, respectively.

Better Way Products is one of the largest and oldest fiberglass manufacturers in the US. It offers a wide range of marine accessories.
