Wanted: Storage Containers for OTA's

I have a second floor deck built specifically as an observation deck for astronomy. I presently own a Starfire 152 and a TAK FS-102. In a week or two my 15" obsession will be arriving.

My problem is this. My Starfire (and probably the Obsession)need time to cool down. Normally I have stored my scopes indoors to keep them safe from the weather. However, the Starfire needs HOURS to cool down and I expect the Obsession (Dave K let me pick out my own mirror Strahl = .997. Eat your heart out, Zambuto!) will need significant time as well since it is a two inch mirror.

Thus I have decided to store all three scopes (unless the FS-102 sells, which it is not showing signs of doing) out on the deck. I would like a two compartment container, so I can store the Starfire an the Tak OTA's in the top, and the Obsession in the bottom. I don't obviously need to store the mounts outside.

Does ANYONE know of a piece of deck furniture that would be suitable for this. Or even plans for such a piece. Obviously, it MUST be waterproof. If you have such an item, or if you know where it could be found, or where the plans could be found, please contact me.
