Galaxy Cooler or another 180 qt to 210 qt cooler?

I apologize in advance if this is a repost. I've gone through numerous threads and it seems that, as of last year sometime Galaxy Coolers was back in business. Does anybody know if this is still the case? I've called and emailed to no avail and I'm wondering if I should pursue it further. If they are indeed out of business again does anyone know of a cooler that will fit the 48" that a standard 18ft raft has? I've found both smaller and larger but nothing that would snugly fit a raft of these dimensions.

Thanks

Do not buy from Galaxy Coolers unless you want to throw your money away. Galaxy Coolers never shipped my cooler, has not refunded money and will not return phone calls or emails. Research the Better Business Bureau and you will see several complaints.

Ditto, I'm in the same boat as you. I left Marty a message last week and got nothing.

Thanks for the input, makes me glad that, in summer of 2010, I went with Yeti.

I camped with a Yeti this weekend, and was really quite impressed. If I had money like I have dust bunnies, it would be nice to have one.

Report: I recently obtained a 105 qt Yeti Tundra. (Been saving up my dustbunnies.) I put about 25 or 30 lbs of cube ice -NO BLOCK ICE AT ALL- and refrigerator goods in it (beer, groceries.) Went up to a cabin in the mountains and removed most of the food - we had a fridge. Kept the cooler on the porch and went into it daily for the beers. It was 70s and 80s in the daytime, high 50's at night. I took pains to keep the cooler shaded and did not drain out meltwater. So, more-than-half-empty, and with only cube ice, the ice lasted about 6 days, 18 hours.

Don't waste your $ on the fancy coolers. Just got off the Grand on Aug. 12. Had a rubbermaid 123 opened 1-2 times a day-with weather striping around the top and reflectix over food and ice and a 125 igloo, with reflectix, taped shut till below crystal. Both were in a meat freezer for five days before the trip. We kept them covered with wet burlap and had ice at diamond creek--17 days. The old technology works very well and is also much lighter. We had one yeti that was out of ice by day 5--granted it was smaller. I paid $59 for the igloo at costco. Save your money for a bimini!
