I'm really hoping someone has come up with a decent solution to a problem I'm having keeping ice in my fishboxes.
This problem has potentially been agitated by the addition of the heaver Yamaha F200 (as the boat originally came with a FICHT 2 stroke), but the engine is around 140# heavier so I can't imagine the weight of what would equal to one very light person sitting in the back of the boat would cause the issue.
The issue is that when trolling, or idling, and people are fishing from the back of the boat, water comes right up and in from the scuppers and straight into the fishbox. The scuppers are underwater a good majority of the time. From what I can tell, it is at least somewhat designed to work this way. The water on the other hand is supposed to drain out from the fishbox into the bilge, and then is pumped overboard via the bilge bump. To add to the problem, the drain for the fishboxes isn't on the bottom but rather on the bottom edge of the back side. Water won't drain until there is a couple of inches worth. This equates to my 80lbs of ice melting INCREDIBLY fast if I don't keep a careful eye on whatever water has gotten into the fishbox.
So has anyone come up with a way to resolve this issue? I tried putting freeze plugs in the deck holes for the scuppers. It seemed like a dumb idea in the event that we took water over the bow, and hardly mitigated the problem anyhow.

My Garmin Chartplotter was having a difficult time finding satellites. Most times I would have to select auto locate just to get it on line. Called Garmin and get them to send me the latest software. Straight forward to load. Wow what a difference. Plotter aligns almost instantly now! I highly recommend to check the software version of your Garmin product.
