Best Portable Freezer???

I am in need of a 12 volt freezer for a two week cruise. My main freezer is down and I intend to install a larger, better insulated unit while on the hard this winter. In the meantime, I am looking for a low amp portable unit to do a two week cruise at the end of August. I could use it later on to supplement or use it on road trips in my car. Anyone have ideas as to the best one that is efficient, cold and a low power user?

Engle usually wins if you got the bucks.

Who knows what is next.

There is already a current thread on this topic right here:

Evaluating 12v Portable Freezer Options

Can't sleep? Read for fast relief. Can't read? Avoid, because it's just personal reviews of sea books.
