Off topic, but, buy yourself a nice 8' or 10' step ladder and get rid of that POS before somebody takes a header and gets hurt... Ladder needs to be higher than where you are headed. Trust me, the fall doesn't hurt; the landing does!

Looks nice. See if you can find shorter bolts on the inside of the lid and nut caps to keep fingers and arms safe. Is it a removal mount?

Nice setup. I have the same table and setup on my Marlin. Biggest complaint was every time I fillet fish(salmon/lingcod) all the blood and guts drain off the back onto the fish box lid or down the transom. Pretty annoying if you don’t stay on top of hosing everything down immediately. It’s stains your boat as soon as it dries. I’ve made a few mods to the table itself with drains and a side kick that holds my wash down sprayer, additional cup holder for gear and a knife sharpener. By now you’d think Burnewiin would have a better design for such an expensive table. Happy to share photos if you’re interested.

I made a similar cutting board and fastened it to my fish box lid. I used wing nuts on the inside to make it easier to take on and off. One of the best modifications I have made to the boat. It is so much larger and more stable then the rod holder mounted boards. Also being in a more stable location of the boat it allows us to more easily and safely cut bait when the boat is moving. Being centralized when fishing with multiple people on both sides of the boat it is much more convenient. I also made it large enough where 2 guys can fillet at once. It has always made me wonder why more owners haven't done something similar.

Is the kicker connected to the steering arm? Let's see some pictures of others custom fish cutting stations. And a pic of how did you mount the kicker?

Thanks

Can you open the fish box with that cleaning station mounted? are those rod holders in the corners of the cleaning station?
