I'm getting a new frame and am hoping to upgrade my 105 qt cooler to a 150 or so. What is the max size I can run on a 16' Shoshone? My inner tube dimension is 42" with med-soft tubes and no frame. I'm looking at a Igloo Maxcold 150, which is at or just under 42". Does anyone know if this will work once my frame is on and tubes are tight? (I do not have a frame right now and know I will need a frame size to accomodate the cooler). Any success or failure stories with this cooler or other brand/size recommendations? Thanks.
That cooler should fit easily. I looked at my cooler & it's 42 in. and there's room to spare in my 16' raft. Get the biggest cooler you can, or two coolers, sit on one, have another in a bay in front of you, later you might get a dry box.
