Has anyone installed the 94 Qt. cooler on the 03/04 Montauk in front of console? Prior to purchase, I wanted to make sure it didn't stick out to far from sides on console. Thanks.

GS, I'm thinking of doing the same thing. I have the 100 quart Coleman cooler which is about the size of the 94. It is usually my fishbox for stripers. Yes, it stuck out a little more but not more than 2 inches on each side. At this point I'm waiting for someone to post pics of the new method that BW uses on the '04 to secure the cooler to the console. Then I'll take the leap.

I did then I changed it back to a 72qt that I use only for dry storage. I felt it took uo too much room in both height and width--

I stand corrected! The measurements are:
72 Qt - 13H X13 9/16W X 23 3/4 L
94 Qt - 17 5/8H X16 3/4W X 34 7/8L

"It is usually my fishbox for stripers."

Jimm,

The problem I've found is a 94Qt cooler isn't large enough for Stripers without bending them. You really need a 128qt cooler for Stripers but a larger cooler will not fit under my RPS and takes up a lot of space on a 17' boat.

The Igloo "Kwik & Cool 100" is 36 " long; wish my stripers were longer.

I've had the problem, the last couple of years, the cooler has been to short.

What doesn't fit in my 94 QT igloo in front of the console, I put in an insulated fish bag. They work great and don't take up too much space.

Perry,
Any chance of taking a photo of the 94 quart that's in front of your console so we can see how much room there is on the sides? Thanks.

My boat is a Dauntless 160 but I think the consoles are the same as a Montauk. I added some pics of the cooler, I hope the link works.

the 94qt will stick out past the console on both sides. The 72 worked great.
