120+ qt. Cooler for 14' Vanguard

Any recommendations for a good cooler for a 14' Vanguard raft?

Do you know what your center compartment width is? That will help with recommendations. Are you looking high end $$$ or middle of the road $$?

The center compartment is adjustable - NRS frame. I have a 120 qt. - 18 in. tall Igloo cooler, but its hinges break frequently. I'm looking for a more durable cooler, but also a lower profile one, since the Vanguard floor sits fairly high.

Check out Engel, Yeti, or Canyon coolers. The first two are a little lower profile but tend to be a bit wider.

+1 on Canyon Coolers. Sometimes they have sizes that are different than other cooler companies, and their prices are a bit lower. I have one of their 105 QT. coolers that's a lower profile.

Also might look at the NRS Big Sky 123 Qt cooler. Pricey, but the size might work for you. It has dry box style latches which is nice.

There are many high quality coolers on the market. Start with your width from tube to tube and find the cooler that is the best fit. You can do this on the internet then when you buy if you can take your boat to the shop and try the cooler in the bay to see how it fits.

+2 on the Canyon Cooler. I have the sailor 105 and it works like a champ.
