Came across a pic of someone who made there own portable stereo setup. Don't like the idea of mounting permenant speakers and radio to console so I bought a nice Husky tool box that i plan on mounting a stereo inside with 2 5 1/4 marine speakers on the sides. Nothing permenant but I can take it in and out and it should be nice and watertight. Also, a small riding mower battery to hopefully give me power for a little while. Will post pics this weekend when I get started.

I have a Dewalt and Milwuakee work radios but with the florida weather I dont think they would make it in a good storm. Plus, no dry storage available. Do they make any nice portable weather proof radios that wont sink the boat with its weight?

This is what I carry on my skiff - not cheap but very small, very tough, very good sound. The tuner is excellent, its actually a stereo tuner thru headphones and the line out jack - I use mine plugged into an amplifier at home and it has reception and sound almost as good as my Magnum Dynalab tuner!

Just waiting on all the parts to come in and I think I will just wing it. Thx for all the good ideas, I probably will end up using the ideas of all of you until I find something I like. Happy fishing! :D

I used to drive a big truck and we had a different truck everyday. I made up a box from an old Samsonite cosmetic case. Had speakers in the top, rubber duckie FM antenna and mag mount CB antenna. I even had a 150 watt lineir amp for the CB. Used it everyday for close to 10 years. Not water proof but got me through the day.
I think I would just go with a boom box these days.
Personally I would go with a Sirius Boom Box and a plastic bag for rain events
