I went to Catalina Island in late August for a couple of overnights on anchor - all went well... but in the process I managed to make three small bags of trash over just three days of being away from the dock. Which raised a question... what do you do with trash?

Keeping the trash bags outside is an option but not a good one which led to just keeping the bags out of way as much as possible which for me turned out to be behind the cockpit ladder.

A more organized and sanitary way to do that would be with some sort of box to contain the trash while away from the dock... a trash dumpster of sorts.

I had a bit of 1/4-inch plywood left over from the shelf project that would be perfect for such a box.

The palm tree inlay was unused from the salon table project and was a bit of an experiment and it did install with a couple hours of carving out the top of the ply to make the inlay flush with the top. As an aside - that inlay kit is really nicely done. I purchased it for about $25 through Etsy.

The box fits nicely behind the ladder and at this early stage it seems like it will work fine. We shall see...

That is without any doubt the most artistic and beautiful DUMPSTER I have seen or will EVER see! (Is it well sealed?)
