Need to replace the cooler which was old Igloo 25qt Marine. The new Igloo marine 25 qt has different dementions and handles. Any idea what might fit in the cooler cubby built into boat?

Didn't realize the dimensions didn't match up, I was planning on buying a new one for my 2665 as well.

It appears based off the Igloo website that they did get rid of the older cooler. The newer Igloo Contour Marine is much different than the older standard 25Q Marine one.

Here are the two on Amazon:

NEW:
https://www.amazon.com/Igloo-Marine-Con ... 01NAM1TNA/

OLD:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001449BMO/

The older one that fits is super expensive here so... Just have to hunt around for it cheaper before they are all out. That will really be a pain for so many people that have the bins for the older style.

I did see that crazy expensive 25 qt on Amazon. They know what they have to as all the larger sizes are a fraction of the cost. Its frustrating that west Marine only makes the elite in the larger sizes.
Did a lot of online hunting last night and no luck.

Wow!!!
I'm sure glad I bought a "Back-Up" a few years ago.
My cooler that fits in the cockpit cavity was looking a little tired.
Someone posted here that the cooler was available at Wally World for $19.95.
Truly the best bargain on anything I have ever purchased for the boat.
Upon reading the thread here, I see Igloo has discontinued that model.
I started looking for one of the older versions and have not been able to find a source so far EXCEPT the aforementioned one still available on Amazon.
Yikes... if you want the "Old School" cooler, get ready to shell out $127.67.
If anyone finds a current source for the older version of the Igloo 25qt cooler for under $60 (or so) let me know.
It would give me peace of mind to have a new one stored in a carton somewhere in case the ones I have break somehow.
The weak points on these coolers are the lid hinges.
Over time they tend to crack and eventually the lid comes unattached.

Update. I bought the new contour. It fits the spot. But the handle is too high so it sits above the notches that hold it in place.

Thanks for that info on the contour.
I'm wondering... could you re-locate the notches?
Move them up to where they support the new cooler?
Otherwise, it sounds like the cooler will be sitting in there unsecured.
I can't imagine it would stay in place for long after a few waves bounced the boat around.
On my 2660, those "notches" are small brackets that look like they could be moved if necessary.
Of course you would have to fill the old mounting holes after the move.
Not ideal, but doable.

What's interesting about it, is the handle on the new cooler appears to be exactly the old handle width high, which means I can possibly take the removable handles off the old cooler and screw them into the new one.

I was thinking about trying that. Could pop the handles off the notch bracket and screw it to the new cooler.

Also the compartment for the cooler looks like it should be pretty easy to remove to bring to a store and test fit some of the other more expensive coolers.
