Ice Box Under Cockpit
|| Pyxis Home Page | How To Page | Projects Page | Dan's Home Page ||

This is a concept drawing of a built in ice box that uses a big cooler under the cockpit. The cooler serves as a big drawer that pulls out for access with the top removed. It would slide into an enclosure under the cockpit with additional insulation. There will need to be a sealing panel on the front, probably with some more insulation. A 120 qt Igloo cooler will just fit. It is about 4 cuft. They can be bought at Sam's Club for $40. The 94 qt might be a good chioce too and probably a bit easier to fit. I think this is my best cooler plan so far. It's simple, cheap and easy to build.
