Fin, thanks for filling in my missing reference. I do however, tend
to agree with the stament that traving chests tend not to have feet.
Having traveld with several hutch style chests I know from experience
that the feet take up a lot of volume that tends to be unusable.
Cleats on the bottom of six-board chests is not a problem.
