What is the best Ice Chest/companion way step out there? Anyone use a Yeti (Rotoscoped-molded) style chest? If so, what size? Researching for the best fit, and it looks like the Grizzly 40 would work well. Let me know what you all are using. If you are like me, the one that came with the boat has probably been crushed a dozen times by now. Thanks in advance.
 
Hello! I bought the igloo 52 quart latitude cooler and it fits as perfect as can be. I have an actual step/dry box, so the cooler is placed behind it. I don't

trust stepping on the plastic lid. But even being behind the step, I found this cooler fits as well as can be, its almost like it was made just for the 24-Good luck!
 
Finally, a reply! Thank you very much for the insight nano, I will check that brand/model out. What do you use for the "step/dry box" then if the ice chest sits behind? Didn't all new 24's come with an ice chest/step with a glued on teak looking step?
 
I'm not sure about that. Some model years may have had something different compared to others. Mine is a 1989. I would have to say the step in mine is an original part, based on the fact it is molded to fit exactly in the space between the side bunks. I've included some pics of the step and cooler. The step has been refinished by me, there was no non skid on it when I bought the boat.

Just curious if you found a sturdy ice chest to fit? I just purchased a Precision 23 and would like to replace the old igloo and be able to move the teak step to a new one.
 
I have not purchased one yet:(, but strongly leaning towards any roto-molded chest that fits the 25.25" wide X 14.5"deep space. Take your pic from any of the gazillion types on the market. Anything that fits would be a great improvement (sturdy, excellent insulation, etc) than what $10 piece that comes with an expensive (at the time of purchase) boat. Might not have to put the teak board on it, just non-skid tape. Then again, back then (80's), Igloo ice chest technology was top of the line because the only other option was a styrofoam cooler.:confused:
