Im working on rebuilding my ice box aboard my 36' Pearson. The current icebox is a massive cave with almost no insulation. Im planning to rebuild it into a 3.5cuft box with at least 5'' of insulation all around. The cold plate system ive chosen is going to be aabout $850 from West Marine and is made for 6.5cuft with 3'' of insulation. Im not sure if its going to be a really good icebox or a freezer.

I installed a Technautics cold plate system in my old Gulfstar. Installation was easy for this novice, an it worked great. After I reinsulated the box by drilling 40 holes and squirting in foam insulation, I used very little juice and managed to freeze the tomatoes. Never had such cold beer!!!
