PWC Coolermate install yesterday
received the coolermate in the mail yesterday and immedietely marched down to the marina to install it. As you can see my ski is sitting on the float and installing it might require me getting in the water but it DIDNT! I was able to put it together within 20 mins. No drilling / no scratches. Only thing i didnt like so much is the 48 qt cooler they provide does not have a latch on the lid... sales told me igloo doesnt make one that size with a latch unfortunately so i had to put it in opening from the sterne. No biggee really, just didnt want the lid flying open while i'm out there riding to the fluke! Installed on 2008 GTI SE 155 any ?'s give me a shout.

Looks great Sandy; but I think, like you do, the igloo is facing the wrong way. I put mine in "backwards" one day and loss 3 fish trying to put them in the ice chest. I found a quick connect type of bungee system at Lowe's that will remedy your problem. As soon as I get picks I will post them so you can see what I'm talking about.
EDIT: Sandy, I picked up this "Smart Bungee System" at Lowe's... it was fairly inexpensive and has proved to be very versatile (for the PWC and in the back of the truck...).

Check out my post above... this is a bump to get it back on top. By doing the above, you should be able to have the cooler face you w/o worrying about the lid blowing off...

It's been a year, what are your thoughts on the PWC Cooler Mate? I am contemplating getting one, but have yet to pull the $275 trigger. Where are you fishing in NJ? I'm getting reall antsy watching all of the striped bass come in through the Manasquan. The fluke are really getting killed in the ocean too.
