Cooler Rigging Ideas

What are the cool ways (hahaha) that boaters are rigging their coolers? We are running a 15' NRS, 125 qt Yeti right now. Just curious....

Nice caverdan. It wasn't my idea I just saw someone on here with a similar picture and thought it was a cool idea. He did ask for a cool cooler rig, right?

Thanks, but it wasn't my idea either. I bought an old boat and that frame came with it. I added the black straps for my cooler. Most comfortable frame I've ever owned. The wood never gets too hot to step on.

Alongside a major highway while dodging traffic.

Save your self the trouble and cut the belts out of junk yard cars,. It's a huge liability for them to sell them as a used part so they should charge you next to nothing. I've cut them out and used them to pull a motor out at the yard.
