I am picking up a new 18HPX tomorrow and I didn't purchase the Maverick cooler.  What size yeti works best 35 or 45 qt.  I have a 65 qt yeti  but I think its bigger than I want to carry on this boat. Thx C

I'm not able to answer your question  as I don't have an hpx but when I was shopping for a console cooler I found that the 45 yeti was about the same capacity as a 35 Engel. The 35 yeti is pretty small. I ended up with a 35 Engel.

I have a 50 for my Master Angler and absolutely love it. Same footprint as a 45 but taller. It can hold longnecks standing up with the basket.  Can’t understand why they quit Making that size. I’d look around on EBay or marketplace and see if you can find a used 50. If not, I’d go with the 45 quart or use your 65 but turn it horizontal. Instead of buying a cushion for mine I bought a sea deck pad from castaway customs. They made is as thick as the helm pads so it has a nice cushion to it. Works great as a seat and also a casting platform if I throw it up on the front deck.

I have the mav seat cooler but typically opt for a yeti flip 18 soft cooler.  Rarely do I have anyone sitting in front of console. It’s also easy to clean at end of day and if needed will fit in back compartment.

Agreed.  50 yeti is my favorite size

My boat has the short console & open cockpit. I use a 65qt Rtic during snook season & 45qt when snook season is closed. I place either cooler coffin style in front of my console. They double as a perfect lunch table & I can sit a passenger on either cooler in front of the console with a throw cushion.
