I am looking to pick up a Mini Max pretty quick. Eventually I want to outfit it with a frame to do overnight trips. I am also in the market for a new cooler and am ready to buy one, but I don't know if it would fit between the tubes. How much interior space is between the tubes on the Mini Max, and how much room is there for a cooler to hang down between the top of the floor and the frame? What are other guys using for coolers in this boat?

It am looking at the 45qt and 50 qt Yetis.

Thanks,

Kyle

Outside width is 60", tubes are 18", so I get 24" between the tubes when I do the math based on the listed dimensions.

That's what I get to, but whenever I do the math it ends up a bit off from the actual dimensions.

I have a mini max and a 45 qt yet which fits nicely.

Have fun, but watch out, the Mini Max is very "active" unloaded. It wants to get surfed everywhere and big waves are a wild ride.... it has put me in the drink now a few times.

Thanks!

Do you think that there is enough room for the extra 3" height of the 50qt over the 45?

Looks like it will be the 45qt. Ironically the 50 will not fit in the bay I want it to go in in my 16' raft!

24" inside dimension is pretty accurate actually. I have a 24" captains box that I turn sideways and sit on it as a dry box in the mini-Max. That dry box squeezes in perfectly between the thwart connections, so the box ends up not really rubbing on the rubber! :D

I just use a cheap Coleman for the mini, but it's a 45 qt I think, and it's not quite 24" wide.

I bought a cooler that measures about 25 inches across for the front seat. Fits tight and nicely between the thwart attachments, gives support without the thwart in.
