Default Cube vs large chest coolers

I was think about a coffin box but coffin boxes are expensive. So I was looking at chest coolers or possibly a cube style cooler. Icey-tec has some big cube coolers the 300 quart would fit my boat, but I wasn’t sure if they had tie down points. Or a 240 quart chest style would fit. What say THT?

What is the boat? That would help determine the best application.

Call up Icey Tek and ask them. You have to check the individual dimensions against the space you have in your boat. We know nothing to be able to tell you if a 45 qt or a 500 qt will fit or would serve you best....

23 SeaCraft but my console is set back and I have a little over 60” to my front step up. Also my front step is only 3” so I want something directly in front of my console. The 300 quart frigid-rigid would be ideal, I just don’t want to pay that much.

What’s the biggest fish you’d expect to catch?
the box should be able to hold it whole with room for plenty of ice.
Theres nothing worse than catching a trophy fish and bringing it home as it spoils on the deck!
ill put up with some awkwardness on deck to be sure that I can handle what I catch.

Either A.) pony up the cash for that 300 Icey tech or B.) buy a large canyon fish bag or C.) build your own coffin box/ insulated cooler box ( it's easy: search it on this forum). I don't see many other options for you....it depends on your priorities: Time, money, quality: these are your variables to consider

For attaching to the deck, you have options: 1.) Fiberglass it to the deck ( probably not preferred). 2.) use Kennedy tie downs with straps to the attachment points on the cooler.

3.) some may put a anti skid mat beneath the cooler, fill it w/ ice and many have stated it doesn't move. Personally, I would want it secured to the deck.

I fished a boat for a few years with a Frigid Rigid.Expensive but it was an excellent cooler. Held ice forever.

Take a look at Fat Wally coolers. Nice variety of cubes.
