I ordered one of these last week: 102 Qt Gott
Unfortunately, it arrived yesterday with a problem. The seam on the material below where the lid’s latch is screwed to had a crack in it, which exposed the foam inside - I think the stainless latch is too stiff for the supporting material design...Anyway, Rubbermaid refunded my money and told me to simply dispose of the cooler, which would be nuts as it would be perfectly functional after 10 mins of work and maybe $10 bucks in parts, not the mention the fact that I’m not putting this in a landfill. It’s a durable and well-designed cooler otherwise.
The crack is about 3 inches long and could be easily epoxied close and a different latch could be rigged. Or, close up the crack, run loop straps over it and do without a latch as it seals really well without it. I am keeping the water tank dividers that it came with.
In the spirit of the holidays, I’d like to give it away to a boater or organization in need of a cooler if someone has suggestions. If you need photos of the crack, I can email them. I can’t ship it, but anyone interested is welcome to drop by my place and pick it up.
Give me a call or PM if you’re interested.
