    Larry,

    Mine is removable, and on the rear. It is nice to be able to take it out and put it on the roof when we are using the dingy. Even when we are not cleaning fish, it is nice to have a table on the back deck. Another consideration is that when it is at the rear it helps to keep people from fishing right over the props and to the side. I think if you had it on the side, it would cause the opposite behavior, and no one wants a line wrapped on their prop.

    Mine is the lid of the fish box, I had Image Plastics add the right angles around the three sides.

    I make custom fillet rigging tables for boats and they can be ordered through Wooldridge. Check out my web site I have some pictures on there. I built one for the Salt Patrol boat also and they have a review on there web site.

    Mike's tables look pretty cool. Mine has two holes in the back corners that are something like 1.25 inches. unfortunately one is positions so that all the blood and guts dump right on the kicker! It is a threaded fitting, so I could connect a hise or pipe, and redirect it, but I havn't bothered to do that yet. I guess I am paying the Yamaha back for its touchyness on cold starting compared to my previous 9.9 Honda that warmed up mch smoother.

    Mine is permanent. It has storage for bait, jigs, weights as well as a couple of rod holders. It is plumbed to drain out the starboard side. It is great to finally have a cleaning station that I do not have to bend over to clean the catch. My back thanks me big time!

    I'd like to see a couple more photos of that "spoiled one". I want to build something so I don't have to bend over to clean as well. I like that one of "jrogers" also. I'm going to incorporate something like those.
