Coolers for Smaller rafts that hang on frame?

I have a smaller raft (Hyside Minimax) and length of the cooler would be 24 inches or less. Canyon doesn't make one that small with the lip that can rest on the frame. Any suggestions? Basically it's a 24" (tube to tube) X 14-15" area it needs to fit.

My G.F.'s 30 qt? Engel is 18 1/2" by 12 1/2", sorta close.I you can't find the cooler size you want, you could get a drop bag from Tuff river Stuff, then use the space next to it for other things, like a back up 12 pack or water jug? Starting to really dig having a drop bag for organizing my stuff in the small boat.

I have an Igloo Marine ultra I am happy with that is about perfect. 24" by 14", think it holds 48 qt. though they claim 57, still does a good job though. Bass pro, pretty cheap price. I just drilled some holes in the ends and added nrs u-bolts to give me something to strap dry bags to, has worked well last 2 trips.

I have seen some SubZero coolers at Murdochs that might fill your need.

Engel 35 is a good choice for the Mini-Max. It does have ~.5" lips that can rest on square tube, unfortunately the latches won't work when they are that close to the crossbar.

I have round tubes. I just came from Murdock's. Unfortunately Sub Zeros will not work. They did have the Yeti Tundra 45 that would. They are expensive.
