Islander 21 Cockpit Cooler

Hello. I have an Islander 21. There is a what was told to me to be a cooler in the aft cockpit floor. It is now just a hole that fills with water. Any idea of what I can do with it; restore it or patch it over?


Thanks!


Rob

Until they began manufacturing Islander 24s, in 1961, Glas Laminates (later Columbia Sailboats) had been a manufacturer of shower stalls and portable toilets, so ...

Sorry; it was meant to be humorous, not hurtful.

Of course, sometimes, the most painful and hurtful thing you can do to someone doesn't necessarily involve deception; it usually involves telling the truth.

"A little sincerity is a dangerous thing, and a great deal of it is absolutely fatal." ~ Oscar Wilde

Where are you gonna park that thing?

S'ok Gord, it was typed with a smile on my face. I wasn't implying any nastyness on your part.

Rob,

It's the motor well. Mine is sealed top and bottom. I wonder what the condition is like inside. I couldn't bring myself to rip into it this year. Maybe next year.

Common, Let's see it. Photos or it doesn't exist.

cheers,
chuck.

are you sure it is a motor well? mine is sealed also. i think it even has power going to it. I haven't crawled back there to verify that but I think it was a cooler. It is the worst place for a cooler in my opinion. LOL.

If you could contact me and help me with measurements for a trailer momdification I would really appreciate it.


Thanks!

Rob

This thing in the aft here? Brown in the top photo:

I use the eyebolts to strap down the gas tank for the outboard.




I'll take some measurements today.

Cheers,
chuck.

Ever been in a 34 bubbletop? What do you mean "had been"?
