I saw some at B&J at the corner of C st & Northern Lights. Also Sportsman's Warehouse carries them as well.

You might also try to meet up with Steve, the Potbuilder, at the next sportsman's show. He makes a really nice square pot...I have a couple of his collapsible pots and the large composite swivels for keeping twists out of the line. The thing that I like about his pots are that they do not have any sharp edges on them. Plus, he's got some of the nicest lines (great handling characteristics) and swivels. Makes life way easier.

 Thanks for the info, I actually found some @ Donaldson's (off Potter Rd) Sportsman's didn't have any...I ended up getting the stackable round ones, on recommendation from a guy who went out EVERY day in Valdez and he had great success, you can stack them all together upside down and the throw your rope inside and you're good to go!

I wished I'd gotten the round stackable ones.  I have two of the square ones, that and a bucket of line takes up alot of deck space.

Tolman_Paul,

If your square collapsible ones are from Steve the Potbuilder I'd be interested in purchasing them from you...this would give you the ability to buy the round ones. :)
I'm fishing from a Zodiac and need to be able to fold 'em flat.

My square pots are not colapsable, hence they take up a fair bit of space.  What I ended up doing is throwing them in the inflatable on top of the pilot house.
