Most of the people I've talked to that have tried them say that, yes they are well made, but lack the insulation for extended multi-day use. I'm sure they work great for a day cooler... but if you want it to last for a week they just don't last. I've actually talked to a few guys who use them as captains dry boxes(which Engel actually advertise them as) since they are a bit lighter weight then an aluminum drybox and stay pretty dry.
Seems like the smaller Canyon coolers might do the trick...but its hard to say.
That looks like a sweet setup. I'm digging the camo seadek foam or similar you put on there. Super slick all around.
edit: If you want something a bit more insulated and long lasting...the Canyon Coolers Outfitter 22 is the exact same outside dimensions as the 19qt. Engel Cooler/Drybox. I can't tell which one you have...so maybe not. Not nearly as much room inside the Canyon due to the thicker walls...but might be worth looking at.
