The Venture 39's raised forward deck holds three in-deck, insulated boxes that drain directly overboard so you can use them as fish boxes, for ice management or dry storage. A fourth huge, insulated athwartship box finishes out the bow-step storage. One step down to the main-deck level leads to yet another large, dry storage compartment. All the hatches aboard are heavy, insulated and gloss-finished on both sides. Venture mounts heavy-duty rams on each hatch so that once you pop the latch, it opens itself; you needn't lift it at all.
