COOLER RACK

Sport Fishing - - SF BOATS -

THE SEAT ON the for­ward por­tion of a walka­round cuddy rep­re­sents wasted space, in my opin­ion. It’s comfy on a har­bor cruise, but too bouncy while un­der­way. So I swapped this seat on my boat for a cooler rack to carry ex­tra ice. Each boat re­quires spe­cial en­gi­neer­ing, but in my case, I re­moved the seat cush­ion, then cut a plat­form from a 24-by-27-inch sheet of ¾-inch Taco Marine plas­tic lum­ber (about $145). The plat­form rests on four through-bolted King Star­board legs made from 1-inch ma­te­rial. An Attwood cool­er­mount­ing kit (about $15) pre­vents slid­ing, and a Yeti cooler tie-down strap kit (about $49) dogs it down. Now the cooler is out from un­der­foot but easy to ac­cess.
