Thanks
Jake

Why not just look at the SSi's or Frigid Rigid Both make large coolers and I believe Frigid has a pick-up box cooler.

What size? How exactly do you want it built. I know a guy that would make one and deliver it to you.

Im looking for one around 5 1/2 feet long by 4 feet wide and around 30-35inches tall. It just needs to be a fiberglass cooler built with heavy insulation foam. It also needs a drain and a fiberglass insulated lid with hinges. It doesnt need to be glossy finished (carolina skiff splatter type if fine). The yeti isnt big enough and the 320 ssi always break and fall apart.

Charlie at C&A Marine could probably make it for you. He is in Deerfield Beach.

5.5 feet by 4 feet fiberglass with heavy insulation. Better get a forklift and extra leaf springs too

You looking for the ones like the plywood ones the kingfish buggers use but with insulation? I don't know where they get them but I feel sorry for anyone that eats a fish that's been in one.

I don't know the actual man's name, but the person who used to build the old Goldline boats made awesome boxes. They will hold ice for days and the seal is so good that the lid doesn't slam, you only hear the air getting pushed out of the way (with no rubber seals to rot or fall off). Maybe check with some commercial guys, they might have a line on what you're looking for.

These are the exact setup of boxes im looking for. The frigid rigid is to small and same with the coffin. It will need to be as big as the entire bed of my truck

So you want a cooler made that will fit in your truck bed? I have a friend that lives in the Keys that does stuff like this for extra money. I can call him and get a price if you like.

I am trying to remember contact info for a guy in Davie west that makes them. He is commercial kingfish guy, his back yard had bunch of boxes in it and he told me he can make them any size. Splattered finish, very study. I will pm you his email if I can find it, or directions to his place. His prices are great
