I believe it will be sturdy, and boat savvy.
Instead of foil I am using duct tape from a/c man. It is just as shiney as foil and it's like thick foil with sticky on the back.
It will double as storage for cooking stuff.
Strata glass instead of breakable.
This sounds like a pretty cool project. Hope you plan to photograph and document it for us to see how it goes.
Thanks

Will prolly depend upon the materials you choose. Mine is intended for shorter trips and is not collapsible, but can be used for storing stuff while not in use.
I'm almost finished with it but need to test it for quality.

If it works, I will show you.
I made the glass out of 3 layers of 5/16 strata glass. Strata glass is a more scratch resistant glass. The best they make I think. I used 3 layers for the weight. Prolly two if it's 3/8ths.
Then I trimmed the glass with that foil tape. Next I'm going to put thin black rubbery foam to help it seal.
Painting the inside of the cooler black this am, and applying the foil tape to the inside of the cooler lid.

Then comes the test. Does it work? how well? will it boil water? Bake bread? How long will it take? etc...

Re: Solar cooking

Definitely Island Time way of cooking.

Cinnamon rolls, 35min, not done, still cooking. But cooking.
