Bought a cheap (£15) 12v coolbox at a boat jumble, which I was really pleased with until it flattened the battery one afternoon, when we were drifting around fishing for a couple of hours. Had to pull-start a 100hp motor with a bit of ski-rope.
Luckily, it started first pull!
I have since wired-in an extra 12v socket which is 'ign-on'!
