I was out with some friends on a business adventure recently. That is the word we use when a bunch of businessmen get together to shoot the breeze and generally goof off for a day. Anyway, we took a fishing boat out of the Port of Fort Lauderdale. Our mandate was to catch as many snapper, tuna and mahi mahi as possible and then clean the fish for a shore lunch.
The fishing boat was decked out with a much more than any fishing boat I have ever been on prior. I’m from Rochester, and I am used to fishing on the Finger Lakes and Lake Erie where an 85 to two hundred and fifty horsepower motor is all you need to power a 15 to thirty foot angling vessel. We considered requiring all the comforts offered on the luxury fishing vessle we were on. This beauty had not only serviceable lavatories and kitchen, but it had a fully adorned, though somewhat stinky, sitting room.
Something I found odd, was the use of marine coolers. I do not know why they are called marine coolers. They look a lot like coolers we use on land. We don’t call land coolers “marine coolers”. We call them “coolers”. Does the plain case that they were placed on a boat make them somehow capable of floating, swimming or navigating? Marine coolers don’t seem armored in any way, so I can not ascertain a military origin.
This boat had marine coolers made by three different companies. I find this strange. Back home, we typically find a brand and use it to other brands’ exclusion. We find peace in relying on a recognized brand. We usually utilize that name brand and boast about it, much like the golden days back in Rochester when you were either a “Ford” or a “Chevy” man. Regardless, this boat had a Coleman marine cooler, a Yeti marine cooler, and a Moeller marine cooler. They all seemed like normal coolers to me, but I found out that they are considerably more expensive. When I questioned why, I was told that the reason was that they are marine coolers. When I pressed harder, I was given a “because they are marine coolers, man. They are just more expensive.” I simply did not understand it, and was stuck for a few minutes wondering when I became a “dude”.
Nevertheless, I was pleased to find out that the marine coolers had different purposes. The Coleman marine cooler is used to keep live bait. The Yeti marine cooler had a broad assortment of drinks. The Moeller marine cooler was my favorite, though. It had sandwiches, fresh fruits and veggies loaded in it. This crew surely knew a thing or two about spoiling its patrons.
Oblivious to the fishing that was going on, I examined the marine coolers more thoroughly. There surely were some appealing options. I admired the way both the Coleman marine cooler and the Moeller marine cooler had grips that telescoped like those on common luggage. It made sense to me that they would. I’m sure it eased their transition from marine cooler to land cooler at the appropriate time.
