Dry storage areas and portable boxes keep stuff organized. The problem with most is remembering where you tossed the small, important things, like car keys. My solution: Plano's Guide Series waterproof case with clear lids, cam latches and O-ring seals, and an interior soft-rubber lining to protect valuables. The hard case has slip-proof pads. The 1450-00 ($16.99, westmarine.com) is my boat box.
