update

In my earlier review I mentioned if I had to bitch about something, it would be the rubber feet. I pulled the screw in one of them today to have it come right out. Unlike my Yeti, you can remove the sticky rubber feet without exposing any of the insulation or compromising anything. The screws through the foot are screwed into a threaded insert that is molded into the plastic. The insert bottoms out and is sealed so you won't expose anything. I put the screws back into the recess to keep grit from getting into the threads should I ever want to put the feet back on. So, bottom line is, my original and only bitch has no merit. Looking forward to getting this thing on a long trip to see how it does.

cheap gasket???

I love my Prospector - seems like a well thought out cooler from a rafters perspective and much cheaper than a comparable Yeti. The only feature they skimped on was the gasket, it's a cheap piece of foam instead of a nice rubber or silicone gasket. Seems like for $10 more it would be worth the money to ensure a tight seal after all that is a cooler's weakest point...

Hope the Navigator has a nice gasket for $500+ cooler.

The 156R is 41" between the tubes.

The Navigator 150 is 41.75" wide.




Tight, but I don't see why it wouldn't fit.

I squeeze a 103 (37 1/2" in my 36" boat. I just lower the pressure to
1 1/2#'s and shove. I prefer a tight fit.

That drain plug location has got me sold. Not having to lift the to get to the plug seems real nice.

I saw the measurements, I was just hoping for someone else to pull the trigger first, cause I'm late to the party!
thanks!

I bet it fits just fine as long as you do the middle of the boat. I've squeezed plenty of coolers and 3/4" shouldn't be a deal breaker. That is almost within the tolerances that most raft companies can maintain in their production line, so you might be on the lucky side and have one that just slides in.

All I'm gonna say is that if you are a rafter and don't at least have a look at either the Prospector or Navigator when you are shopping for a cooler then you are silly person. The RTIC is certainly cheaper, but the extra features in these coolers and the lifetime warranty are well worth the ~$100 difference for equivalent sizes (using non-sale pricing).
