    There are several types of chests now, based on the old random level 1/2/3 chests and ancient chests:

    1. Rusted: These are the equivalent of the old chests that were "level 1" (10000 gold, 5 scrolls, 6 items, possible level 1/stash T-map, etc.) They also are some of the few chests from fishing that use the new chest gumps (if that setting used in CC)
    2. Metal: These are the same old metal chests as before (but always the gold-trim ones, which use the old tiny chest gump), and represent the Level 2 Chests (double the items of the level 1, chance at a level 2/Supply map)
    3. Gold: These are the new chests for the good (level 3) level of random chests (and can have a cache map). Use the old chest gump.
    4. Wooden: Also use the new gump. As the old wooden chests, and usually level 2 chests (though I think I might have got them for level 1 and level 3 chests as well). Can't remember if it's just the plain wood, or if the fancier ones spawn as well, as they are relatively rare (about 1 in 10 at best).
    5. Ship's Strongboxes: as before, very rare drops. I've done about 100 SOS since the change and only gotten 2 or 3.
    6. Ancient chests: Can be White Wood, White Metal, or a greenish barnacle covered chest. All will now have the name of their associated ship (same list of names as on the ship reliefs from 22nd Anniversary tokens (will post list below). Also, all of the pre-chest loot will have thename of that ship as well, so you can have paintings "recovered from the shipwreck of the Ararat", for example.
    7. Ancient Strongbox: White, and pretty much a booby prize when you are expecting an ancient chest. But, they are rare and also bear the name of the ship.

    Ship names for Ancient SOS chests/strongboxes and pre-chest loot.
    Arabella
    Ararat

    I don't know if those are the "boxes" you mention.
