Cooler Mount

Hi There - I work for a GC outfitter and we use our coolers to row from, they are suspended off the floor by straps - no fancy mount needed! We also use a piece of foam over the top -- but a paco could easily be substituted for some butt padding...

Loop Straps

I have only ever rowed from my cooler. Very simple, affordable and effective. I have two, four foot loop straps that suspend the cooler off the floor, and you can easily adjust the cooler height. Then two, four foot loop straps over the cooler. I have seen many other flipped rafts using the same method and this system has not failed yet! Also I love my DRE oar towers, just the right height.

Has anyone used the NRS cooler mounts? Any thoughts on using the adjustable version instead of the fixed height version?

I have the cooler mounts. If you are rowing from it and it doesn't "wedge" in from side to side, know that it will move a bit.

I've also heard (but not 1st hand) that there's a possibility of the mount (during a flip) swinging out from underneath and the cooler coming loose. It seems like a very unlikely thing to happen but I sewed a strap between the two in order to ensure that this doesn't ever happen.
