Another Cooler Question?

Does anyone know what the difference is between 1 94 qt igloo marine cooler at academy sports for $65 and the same size marine cooler at alot of the other sites being around $120. They look exactly the same.

ALso, I was looking at getting a cooler that measures 42 inches in width and the measurements between my tubes is 40 inches. Will it hurt to squeeze it in there or should I find 1 that is 40 inches or less.

I have used the 94 qt. Igloo cooler that you mentioned for 65$ and they work great just do'nt sit on the lids too much or stand on then too long. 42 in. will fit and work in the 40 in. space. I had eight of those coolers at one time.

My Igloo I bought from Academy lasted 4 years. Not bad for the price!

Differing Igloo Marine coolers

the igloo marine line appears to have different models and costs, here was my experience: Cooler Opinions??

there is the cheaper "marine ice chest" that has a thinner lid with no latch, and the more expensive "marine cooler" that has the thicker lid with latches and somewhat better quality handles. i ended up with an igloo "marine elite cooler" i found on sale at West Marine (West Marine: West Marine Search Tool), a model with stainless steel hinges and latch. the 72 qt. was around $65 when i bought it earlier this summer, and the denver store location actually had some other igloo marine coolers in stock that were not on the website - they might have a 90 +/- qt. model you are looking for.
