LaNinfa is on a distinguished road
I just read an article about a dingy that was being rebuilt. Please bare with me while I explain. The author used rigid foam as the replacement bench framing for the seat. He then covered it with a layer of resin and fiberglass for strength. This should work for an Ice chest or whatever else you are looking to frame. using appropriate alternating layers of fiberglass should give you the strength you need to even make a weight bearing step ( with a step notched lid as well. P.S. Iam doing this same thing in my Catalina 27. Hope this helps
