I've found Gatorade bottles to be just about indestructible and have tossed them in the freezer (don't fill the whole way, and don't put the lid on).

if you look at the weather it should be cold enough at night that it'll just re-freeze everything. Plus, as fast as you row, you shouldn't need that much ice.

We froze 60 PBRs and lined the bottom of the cooler. Then added a few frozen milk jugs. Made sure all the food was frozen before hand and had absolutely no problem with the food keeping cold on Lodore. I have a colman xstream cooler.

I think we even had to thaw out a few beers at the take out to drink them.

The frozen beer trick is awesome - keystone, coors light, pbr, almost all crappy beers will freeze fine. when in doubt try one first.
