The coolers that use a Pelletier type cooling mechanism don't work very well IMHO. You'd be much better off getting something like a small Engel portable refrigerator. Most of them can work off of 110VAC or 12VDC, so you can pack it the night before, plug it in at home and have it chill everything down, plug it into the car to keep the stuff cold on the way to the boat, and then plug it into the boat to keep it cold all weekend long. The amp draw on some of the smaller ones is probably comparable to that of the pelletier type cooling units, but the Engel's more efficient compressor based system can actually keep stuff FROZEN. BTW, I have the MT 27 unit installed on my boat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
