Challenger counter Deck Box

Hi all

I'm keen to look into the possibility of getting a right sized deck box build at the same time my cockpit sub-deck/bearers/thwarts are being repaired. Does anyone have the dimensions/wood type (teak?) or any instructions re fitting one. Strikes me as a great addition for more storage on deck and as part-protection for the helmsman/woman when wind is abaft the beam!

Does anyone know if all Challengers were built with one? Perhaps a tall order as they were built in so many different yards after Halmatic's GRP hull moulding process.

With thanks
