I dropped a navigator in my 156r last night... it's snug but fits. Seems like a nice cooler however I will have to do some tweaking to make it work with my set up... the lip on the cooler is a nice feature but makes it tough to share a crossbar with a tabbed dry box. I may need to add an additional crossbar on my NRS frame.

yeah, that lip can be a blessing and a curse. Super nice that it isn't going to be tipping anywhere, no suspension strap,etc but it really can't even be next to another box unless its lower than the lid of the cooler or opens the wrong way. I moved it to the back of the boat where I sit instead of running it up front next to the other box like I used to do. An add'l crossbar would solve the problem but I didn't have the room for it on the frame.

Sooooo, how are you y'all liking the navigator now? We are about to buy a new cooler for our nrs e150 (and life stuff). Interior width of the raft is right at 45". We're torn between the prospector and the navigator. The prospector is less expensive and more versatile with its smaller size, but is narrower by 7" and i abhor wasted space. The navigator is pretty enormous and heavy, but would fit perfectly between our tubes. I also think i could fit an elk in it. Our ancient igloo is about 17.5" in depth, which has worked well, the navigator is about 20" between the bars and 22" above which for some reason feels too big when we look at it. Our cooler sits alone, ahead of the rowing bay for passengers so lip overlap isn't a big issue. My sweetie and i want one cooler to do it all What do you guys think?


Thanks!!!

Buy the Navigator.

I am even happier after using mine. You can put a drybox directly behind it and it still opens. The hinge is a zero clearance design.

I was concerned about losing a plug when draining it, so I emailed and asked if I could buy a spare. They sent me one for free.

The basket design is brilliant. You can use the same baskets and have them on the same level or turn one 90 degrees and they stack over each other.

I've been looking at buying a Navigator since March. Still haven't seen them in stock. Either I missed when they came back in stock or they never have. I had emailed them a couple times in March, it sounded like they were having some issues building them?

I plan on getting one. We have a Yeti 110 from our 14' boat and now have a 156R, lots of wasted space and holes for people to step in.

Get the navigator. We had ice when we got home from a 20 day grand trip in may. That said, the cooler was frozen in a walk in and didn't get opened until day 13. It was out of the freezer for 25 days by the time it got home and still had a sizable chunk in the bottom. We didn't need it for cocktail ice since we got a bunch from a motor trip so we let it ride home another 2 days. Cooler maintenance was getting a little sloppy the last couple days and beers were getting thrown in there etc. They are damn fine coolers.

I also was trying to get one, specifically for a Smith trip coming up next week. They told me a month or two ago that they were still 2 months out - sounded like they'd be available right about the time we get off the Smith. They also told me that this model hadn't been IGBC certified yet, but were hoping to have that done by the end of the year. Ended up going with the Engel 123, which is IGBC certified, fits perfectly in our 14 footer, and did great on a Dolores trip last month.

Downriver had one sitting in their show room yesterday. Looked nice and well built. Might be worth calling them if you want one.
