I am looking for a cooler seat for a rage 15, preferably all white, any ideas?

Resident Rage fixer-upper here... The story goes that the original owner left my cooler on some Bahama Island after consuming the numerous beers inside it. When I bought my Rage, the second owner threw in a cooler with wheels (with the wheels removed!). Needless to say, that was a sloppy fit!
So, in the search for the "right" cooler, we've determined that the 54Qt Igloo is too large (fore-aft) for the existing chocks. The next smaller (36Qt or 48Qt, I don't remember) was OK fore-aft on the chocks, but needs the chocks moved apart about 1" side to side.
Obviously, Igloo changed the dimension of something... Probably adding more foam than was originally in the appropriate sized cooler...
I'll let you know the size after my next visit to the boat.

where2 - thanks for checking. My boat never had a cooler so there are currently no chocks in the floor. I suppose I could use any cooler that fit the space but am wondering if I can't get an original what size or style might work best?

I still have my rigid winter cover on my Rage so I can't get to the cooler but I hope to this weekend and will check the fit with what I believe is the same igloo cooler purchased at our local supermarket for 16$. The cushion may be a lot harder to replace.

Couldn't put it off any longer so took the cover off tonight. The orginal igloo is a 40 gal model. My supermarket special is a 48 gal igloo which is the same height and depth but three inches too wide to fit in the orginal chocks.
