|After two seasons with this boat, which fits our bill perfectly, we really miss the fridge we had on the big boat. Ice just doesn't cut it. We only need electrical food cooling dockside, and we do not need to keep food frozen. The options are not so easy to sort out. I had hoped to add a 110V cooling plate to the icebox, and I think someone once had one there in this boat judging from the old wiring I removed in the refit, but it is long gone and such units appear to hog space outside the icebox and add weight to the stern. I seriously considered chopping out the icebox and putting a small bar fridge on a platform in that space, but that seems like a bad idea for many reasons, including structural, spatial and hardware quality. A plug-in cooler would take up too much floor space, and there isn't much room in a C&C 27 to hide one. Plug-in coolers tend to use DC power, but I would want to plug it into 110V. Any thoughts?
