Anchor storage. Never knew it was a "cooler".

To prevent that slime in the cooler I keep the lid open to let it air out after each use.

Is yours under the front passenger seat like mine?

There is a hole in the fiberglass just in front of the ski pylon that has a rubber gromlet in it which leads to the front cooler...I was thinking of getting a plug to put into the gromlet to prevent any water from collecting in the front compartment. Then, just remove the plug when you want to drain the compartment.

Anyone do this?

Use mine for its intended purpose, except...I have a soft cooler that fits in the opening. Keeps the water and slime from building up and it keeps the drinks colder for a longer period of time.

Now that's a great idea.
I use mine as a cooler but it goes through ice fast. A soft side in there... problem solved.

Perfect size of a day trip trash can and if it got nasty, could wash it into the bilge.
That's one thing the newer MC's are lacking is an integrated trash can or at least a good spot to put one. We got billet everything and more electronics than the space shuttle, but gotta use a plastic bag blowing around in the cockpit for trash (mostly empties).

I hear that... trash can is lacking on all vintages.

My cooler has a drain hole too and had a plug on a chain that had fallen apart. I was able to find a replacement at the hardware store. It is still hard to get it to seal very well. You can twist it to increase the diameter, but then it is hard to close. It kind of works.

I use it to hold old slimy course buoys after I have to replace them with new ones. At least in there, they won't roll around in the boat staining my puff interior.
