I picked up a set of [cooler chocks]. I am trying to figure out the best way to mount them. Anyone want to stop laughing long enough to give me the heads up, shoot me a picture or something? I'm planning to work on my Outrage this week. Thanks--Dave

I never liked putting these things on the deck, You have to put the cooler in the same spot all the time, and when the cooler is not in the boat they make a nice toe catch. I would look at holding the cooler in place another way, even if you just have to tie it in place with some rope. Good luck

I got a new cooler for my 1984 Montauk 17 after 31 years and of course chocks are slightly out of position to fit snugly

Wood screws, #10, 2-inches, with plenty of silicone to prevent water ingress.

As for a good position, I attached mine under the RPS and use a small 25 qt Igloo Marine cooler. This is a good set up for me and I love this little cooler for day trips. Under the RPS keeps it shady and cold and very convenient. I have it mounted where it slides forward but it could go either way and I see a point for doing it both ways. I also have a larger cooler in front of the Center Console but I used eyestraps and bungee to hold it in place.
Either way #10 wood screws and silicone as mentioned holds it all in place whether eyestraps or classic wood chocks.
