Default boxes for 6.5"

I'm installing a low-budget (that is to say, cheaper than a night out drinking) marine stereo in my boat. It came with some 6.5" speakers. I have no numbers on the speakers but instead of cutting big holes in the boat to mount them I plan on making some boxes for them. Should I worry about box size, or just make some little boxes that fit? The purpose of the boxes is primarily to make a place to mount them without cutting the boat. I know they'll never sound wonderful, but can you give me some tips on making boxes that will at least guestimate on making the best of midrange and bass? I figure as long as I'm building boxes, might as well make them the right size.
Audiophile by ear, but I don't know crap about the math

As I know, the easiest way is to use a board, not a box.
