captain box & cooler

My perfect setup would be to have both a captains box and a captains cooler in my footbay. The box is the easy part but the cooler that would fit in there may be more of a stretch.

Any ideas or pictures of a setup like this?

Engel Cooler/Dry Box - 30 Quart - Coolers - Camping / Cooking

This Engel 30 qt. cooler has worked well for me for four years. Holds about 18 beers. Goes up to camp with me. Gets restocked in the morning. Usually needs ice added but can last two days with night time temps below freezing.

if you have the perfect size captains box, you could just glue some foam on the inside of it and it would bomber, but expensive.

I run a cooler in my captains bay but my boat is huge so it's easy for me. I fill it with frozen meals and get in it once a day. Or clean cocktail ice depending on the trip.

I use dual Engel 19 Quart Dry Boxes on my 14ft raft.
One as a Captain's Box, the other as a Beer box.
I bought mine at AKS a couple years ago.
Currently $46.99 and free shipping

Nice, very symetrical
Hey, what are the running boards made from? They look pretty nice as well

I measured the boxes and had Jan over at Stitches 'N Stuff build me slings based off her Rocket box slings to fit the Engel 19's.
