Re: Crealock 37 Icebox questions

A space blanket is an inexpensive solution.

I'm currently commuter cruising (a week or so each month) Sea of Cortez.
I had same concerns.
Didn't want to blow up everything and rebuild icebox/frig for something that was questionable---rather be sailing.

I bought a space blanket for $3.49. Cover food and a bag of ice inside ice box (like a ceiling) and keeps things nice and chilled...takes 4 days for the last cube to drop in a glass of soda pop.
Suspect a couple pounds of dry ice and the space blanket would last way way longer..probably have to extend for 10 days or more.
Hope the space blanket idea helps.
