Build Your Own Fish Cleaning Table

Fish Cleaning Station | Boat Outfitters

If you fish you have to have a place to clean your catch and your wife doesn’t think the kitchen sink is the best option, at least my wife doesn’t think so! Your best bet is to have a fish cleaning table, or better yet a complete fish cleaning station. Boat Outfitters offers basic fish cleaning tables as well as complete fish cleaning station assemblies for the angler who wants to go all out.

Our dock fish cleaning stations are designed to install on your seawall , dock or marina. While these units are very nice, we recognize that people want options and people may just want a custom fish cleaning table to fit their space requirements. Hence; we developed the Build Your Own Fillet Table Top! Our build your own fish cleaning tables are designed to fit you rindividual needs. They can be installed just about anywhere including the side of your house, your outdoor kitchen, along side your grill or you can store in your garage and bring it out as needed.

One of the best things about using the build your own fish cleaning table option is that it does not include any legs. This cuts cost considerably and allows you to mount it on top of any existing counter space or build your own support base.

As you can see, you have a lot of choices for your custom fish cleaning tables. You can choose the thickness, the length (left to right measurement) and the width (front to back measurement), whether you want a back and sides, a knife holder, a drink and tool holder, and we will even route and assemble it for you to make things even easier.

Should I have my table routed & assembled?

Good question… Routed means that the edges of the table, sides and back will be rounded over for a more finished look. Assembled means it will come completely assembled and ready to install. If you do not select this option, your table with come as an unassembled kit. This is a great option for the boater comfortable with drilling a few pilot holes and adding a few screws who wants to save a couple of bucks.

As for the other options, we can add a knife holder, which always comes in handy. Our knife holder completely covers the blade and locks the knife into place without upward lift. And on a hot summer day it’s always good to have a place to keep that ice cold beverage handy while you’re cleaning the day’s catch, so why not have a built-in drink holder right on the fish cleaning table? We also throw in a tool holder with the drink holder so you’ll have a place to keep your water hose where you can get to it easily.

    I have an old fish cleaning station that is m,mounted on a wooden frame that needs to be replaced. It is a flat surface with a sink on one side. If I send you a photo and a drawing, could you provide a priced quotation for the replacement?
