The "trash chute" on this boat is built into the countertop.
Unfortunately, the area below the "lid" was not well-suited to a trash can. Neither a round nor a rectangular can would fit there.
We decided a "custom" trash can would be in order!
Here is the cabinet below the chute opening. I've used cardboard to start the design for the custom trash can.
After measuring the height, I continued to piece together the "mock-up" of the trash can.
This shape will fill the entire space below the "chute"...
Here you can see the bottom of the chute, emptying into the "mock-up".
Fast forward a few weeks.....Duane made one out of aluminum!
With his usual attention to detail - pretty rivets!
From the bottom.
And he added a nice handle for me so I could easily get it in/out of the cabinet.
Making sure a kitchen-garbage bag fit nicely....
Yes, yes, it fit nicely - and works as advertised!! Betcha weren't expecting to see actual GARBAGE, were ya??? Ha!!
