Merry Go Round Storage

Silly name... but it works. I came up with this while designing the Raised Aft Storage. My daughter came up with the name. Basically I wanted to utilize the entire back space in the aft. So I bought five containers from Lowes and drilled holes in the front and back. I then took and old blue dock line and cut it equally five times, pushed each end in the hole and made a simple knot. Now I have five containers that rotate by just pulling on them. I took out the starboard aft cushion... never used it anyway.
