So what we had is we had a lot of the Pontoon Builders and and pontoon individuals that uh they really loved the folding table that we had done but they also loved the uh the drawer unit so they were kind of back and forth which one do I do you know I do the entertainment or do I do the the storage uh so we kind of said okay well we can get them both you know so we we took and uh shortened the table a little bit because we still have plenty of depth up at the top there for the table part of it uh and then utilize the bottom area for a drawer and then in addition to that lower area for the drawer um you know we had some requests for a dog bowl um add to that part so we made a small removable dog bowl unit that goes in the drawer so that unit is actually available to be taken out and uh so if you don't have a dog or you want to use that for storage and stuff like that you can take that out and it’s nice you know it’s a nice little drawer on the bottom.
So the drawer, however tall you make the drawer you're taking that out of the the usable depth of the table. So you’ve got this trade-off.
You're still kind of getting the Best of Both Worlds.
You got to find that that sweet spot so our the the the drawer Heights are those pretty standard as far as you're fixing them to the or are they varying a little bit to pay depending on the height of the lounge back rest.
They vary a little bit if we're trying to be specific to the dog bowl part of it you know we keep those a little bit short depending on we don't want it too high for some of the smaller dogs and stuff like that but we usually uh you know want to maximize the size of the table too because on the table uh we're still wanting to do a table topper which gives
You you know your wine and cheese and stuff like that.
So they can still fit you still have a Topper that can fit the more shallow
You do and depending on the unit in a lot of cases you can actually store uh the topper on top of the drawer you know when you open the table up it slides in on top of that depends on the depth of the unit of course.
That's pretty nice then you don't have to find it an additional space on the boat to take up storage space right it keeps it nice and clean and keeps it from getting damaged and stuff like.
So the the dog bowl when I first saw that I'm like man is that do people want that but it turns out yes they absolutely want that it's been at the shows that's been a big time hit thing.
It's been a great part of the show you know and a lot of times it's you know you know what do you uh when you go to a show you look at different things and it's Unique little things to differentiate and make you know make this boat different than the other one and that's it's really been a popular item.
That's cool so people people are using most of the time are they using the dog bowl inside the drawer or are they taking it out or what how are they using it.
You know in some cases they're just pulling the drawer out letting the dog get a a drink but in a lot of cases because it's a removable insert it's got little little legs you can take it stick it someplace else up on the deck um or you know if you're at the beach or something like that you can pull it up on the sandbar.
That’s pretty nice to be able to take it out and out onto the SandBar with you.
And it's nice to let you clean it and stuff like that to be able to you know take it out and rinse it out and stuff like that.
Yeah I mean and if you if you don't have your dog that day or you don't have a dog you know you toss it right now you just got a nice usable drawer unit. You one thing uh you were you were saying uh the other day that it's worth you know reiterating is you know another option if you don't want to do the all-in-one is depending on what you have the other direction is you could go the full size uh folding table you know and then come in from the other side with a drawer unit to utilize that depth you know knowing that the folding table only takes up you know about four and a half inches so you have access from the side if you wanted to do a full.
We do have some different uh drawers like that that are actually an angle drawer they give you a little bit of space in the top that are actually angled uh and you've got a drawer on the bottom and you still have a kind of a cubby up at the top that takes advantage of that you know that angled space that you have up at the top of the lounge back.
I've seen those coming through those are nice Parts yeah it really gets you some good usable storage where otherwise it'd be hard to access.
And they're able to be you know 16 or 20 inches deep too.
Yeah yeah because you get a lot of depths going there the other direction.
