Which leaves me curious about your ice box pump. How did you set that up? Right now mine drains into a plastic container which I empty daily - or forget to empty daily.
Hellosailor has a great solution for the icebox.

The cross members are several piece of plywood fiberglassed together. One is two pieces and the thicker one is three pieces, then glass mat used to attach to the hull.
