Tall, soft, or a traditional cooler or what ever you use and where do you put it on your boat?

I have two red hard-sided coolers on wheels. They are easy to "roll" from the truck to the boat, and they fit perfectly under the bolsters.

This one is blue, but mine are red.

What's with all these drinking threads? Maybe we should start a "Booze Forum" for all of you.

The cube coolers like Clay posted (mine is the smaller version) fit great in the cabin and don't rub the seats when I open and close them. Just bought an AO soft cooler and am liking it so far. Ice Chests always go in the cabin unless its just two of us on the boat, then I'll leave it in cockpit.

I have a 48 and a 24 can soft side from american and they are great. Easy to carry and fit anywhere. They will make them for you in any color to match your boat and put any logo on them you want

American Outdoors is the last cooler you will ever buy. Ice lasts longer than any hard sided cooler I have ever had and it wont scratch, sweat or bleed colors. They are great.

Check the measurements before you buy. I've got one and I can't get it through the cabin door. Its wider than the standard rectangular ones.

I'd go with a soft cooler from american outdoors. I just bought 5 of the 48's for groomsman gifts.
