Keep Your Cool This Summer
No matter what size boat you own, coolers are essential onboard equipment, even if
your boat has a dedicated icebox or refrigeration. Coolers come in all sizes, and are built to
differing specs with a variety of users in mind. Here’s a look at similar-sized models, with
different intended uses, insulation ratings, and prices from a wide spectrum of brands.
Engel Deep Blue 80
When you’re serious about keeping stuff cold,
you build a cooler with thick walls, an equally thick
lid, and airtight gasketing, just like your freezer at
home. Engel’s Deep Blue coolers are made with
roto-molded polyethylene, two inches of injected
foam insulation, a gasketed lid, and stainless-steel
hinges and backing plates. They’re tough enough
to earn a bear-resistant rating, and will hold ice for eight to 10
days. Designed with a sloping floor to improve drainage, a “one-twist” drain plug that
lets water out without having to be removed all the way, and feature holes in the lid and
corners for a padlock. Engel has nonskid, non-marking feet that keep the cooler raised off
deck for easy cleaning. $319.99 for the 80-qt. model; www.Engel-USA.com
Coleman Xtreme 5 Marine Plus
The Coleman name might conjure
up images of a campsite for many of
us, but they also have a line of marine
coolers. The Xtreme 5 has been optimized for onboard use, with a UV- and
infrared- fighting exterior, antimicrobial
liner, and stainless hardware. The lid
has four molded-in cup holders. It’s
also rated to hold ice for five days and
you can buy cushions to fit the top,
turning it into a handy seat, as well as a
tie-down kit separately. $95.99 for the
70-qt. model; www.coleman.com
Moeller Ice Station Zero
Moeller designed their Ice Station Zero line with fishermen in mind. Made with FDA-approved
polyethylene inside, so it won’t absorb odors, and seamless double-walled boxes so your fresh catch
can bounce around inside without damaging the cooler. The lid undergoes a 24-hour pressure fitting process to improve the seal, giving this cooler a five-day ice rating. Add stainless hinges and
rope handles, and you’ve got a cooler ready for your next fishing trip. $279.99 for the 94-qt. model;
