When Your Reefer Dies

After a refrigerator or icebox dies and stays closed for a while, you can either sell the boat, sink it for an artificial reef or follow my 8-step program for restoring the reefer to something you can live with. Follow instructions at Janet Groene's BoatCook

You can also not use refridgeration (a few billion people across the planet pull this off every day).

When I saw the heading, I was going to suggest that you re-light it or try not packing it so tight in the pipe.....
