Small cooler for weekending
Long story somewhat shortened, I was going to add insulation to the ice box on my c&c30, 72 vintage this winter. But I was reading a thread on drop in refrigeration here a day or so ago, and someone was using a stand alone engel fridge and using the icebox for storage. This makes more sense for my usage of our boat( use the ice box for non-perishable goods, and pack a cooler with cold stuff for the weekends ( which is the bulk of the way we are at our boat).
Currently we pack soft cooler bags( soggy and not great at retaining ice, and then placing them in the icebox) . So I'm thinking a smaller cooler , with wheels,
Somewhere in the mid 20 quart capacity, which should serve our needs well space wise, and won't get in the way all that bad in the cabin , and won't be a bear to lift from the dink onto the boat. Anyone have a favorite that's stood the typical abuse and didn't bust the wheels , handles , held ice well?
