I just went out to get the leftover beer out of the cooler and drain the water from the melted ice. The cooler does not have a drain. What a cheap piece of crap, I have never seen a cooler without a drain. I'll bet they saved about $2.00 on these coolers over one with a drain.

Sorry but I had to rant on this one.

Steady now. Life is too short. I believe that the reason there is no drain is that the cooler is pretty small and except for being weighted down with too much un-drunk beer, it could be easily lifted and dumped. I also believe that if you want a drain, well, we can get you a drain. Boaters World has Igloo drain kits for under $6.

WallyWorld has aerator valves that you could use for a drain for under $4.

Problemo Solvo.

You have to admit, it is a great boat!

I posted some time back that we'd tried one of these Igloo Marine 36 quart coolers in our 150 Sport and found it to be worthless, except perhaps for one day's outing with a lot of ice. When we go up to Lake Erie, we tent camp for 3-4 days with the boat next to our camp site at night.

The 50 Quart 5-day Igloo "Ultra" held ice for the whole time, plus days afterwards. It's now sold as the MaxCold with a blue-gray bottom, but you can still get it in all white from West Marine. 10001/80927/0/0/cooler/All_2/mode%20matchallpartial/0/0

The 36 quart just guaranteed we were going to be frequent customers at the camp store. We eventually just used it for dry storage. IMHO, it's not worth investing any money in.

Oops... meant to post the URL of the 50 quart MaxCold:

so you could compare its measurements with those of the 36 quart:

There's no reason to rant. The 36 qt. size has never had a drain plug. It doesn't need one because it's small and light enough to just pick up and dump.

Sometimes venting is good.

I think that given the price for this model boat, a cooler with a drain is not too much to ask for.
