I have been researching various sailing designs and find both top load and traditional door access on coolers and freezers appealing. I understand the versatility of both, but, would like some input from boat owners on which design was chosen and why... As a novice chef, I can work with either one, I'm just looking for experience from the Captains and crew here. Thank you in advance!
got mine by default--was once a fridge , engine driven, but after thieves, is now a cold box sans coldness. i place heavy items inside to offset the weight of the batteries on other side of boat--until i decide what i want to do as far as coldness for foods is concerned.
i need to refit this area, and i am waiting to see what is most cost effective when i am ready to install something.
sorry about the inconvenience and invasion of property... the battery storage and compensation was another topic for another day as well. What have you considered given the fact you have to refit that area?
