    A cooler on the boat will last me about 4 years. They don’t get treated very nicely. They cost $30-$40. I won’t spend $400 on a Yeti. I toyed with an Ozark, but they are so big and heavy. I’ll just keep spending my $10 a year for the marine grade Igloo.

    There's always some type of issue with coolers...

    Wife and I take a lot of day trips. The wife spotted Yeti soft coolers on sale during Amazon's Prime Day sale. She clicked the buy button on a Yeti 18 for $100 off (still way too expensive). The zipper is too stiff for her. So... I guess I'll still be good for something.

    Only thing a conventional cooler is good for here is packing game and it's in dry ice. Once you get a compressor stand alone, you'll never go back to a wet cooler.

    I would never buy a 'Yeti' anything. Overpriced, made in China and Yeti is anti-2A.

    Now I might use one for target practice if someone gave me it for free.

    I remember in the 1950s and 60s my Mom and Dad had a steel Coca-Cola cooler. I'm sure it would break a bone of you dropped it on your foot.
    Be careful,

    Really ???? a cheap plastic tray to keep a sandwich out of the water would put the price out of reach.
    I got around that by freezing water in half gallon milk jugs. A solid block last longer and doesn't drown your food.

    We had the steel Coleman ones; took 2-3 people to haul it form the car to the beach..............and our inflatable rafts were US made and of canvas surrounding a rubber bladder; hard to break those!

    A good tip to avoid breaking the bank and keep your food fresh.

    I have a Coleman Cooler from about 35 years ago. It has the plastic 'hinge'. We used to use it a lot for keeping food cool when camping. (We used to go camping a lot!) It's still sitting in the cellar......the 'hinges are fine.' And it keeps a lot of food cold for days. I also have old Coleman stoves, lantern,and gas grill. TYhey all still work fine. We keep them around for emergency situations, like when a Ice Storm that knocked out the power for a week about 9 years ago. Bob
    When you want the BEST! Bob
