coolers.

New member/thread. Old topic. Picked up a 14' Hyside last week and looking to outfit it with a full rig. 36" between the tubes...tough to find a roto-mold cooler with the proper dimensions...any suggestions?
Also, been told there is a Hyside expert on here and I need some info about this boat...unusual dimensions...any help with who that person might be? Apparently referenced on Hyside website but couldn't find the link.

This cooler is right at 36" long. Maybe it will just fit in?

Cool link. Not a cooler, though.

Make sure you take actual inflated space measurements. Do not believe the spec pages, especially with Hyside. You might end up with a rubbing situation if you cut it too close.

I crammed a 100 qt yeti sherpa 38" and a 36" plasitc dry box into my 13' hyside for years (meas. right at 36" with no thwarts inflated). It rubbed the whole time, the rig lived on a trailer and averaged 30-50 days on the river and 5k road miles every year for most of it's life. There was not one mark, scratch, rubbing from either and both were very tight fitting into the boat. I felt that fitting the longest cooler (or box) I could in the space helped the boat keep shape and kept the floor from creeping up too much. That's just my opinion but I'd do it that way again for sure.

If you go with a Canyon Sailor, make sure you upgrade to the butterfly latches - you'll be able to keep it low in the boat and still access without any hassles.

+1 on this. I have a Sailor and wish I had the butterfly latches.

I did talk to Canyon about the Sailor coolers, and there are a couple still around, but they are going to be making another run in their more standard color that should be done in 60 to 90 days. If they know there is a high demand, maybe they will move that up. Seems like more companies need to make coolers this size.
