Re: Block Ice
The 12 pound blocks should be 12.5 pounds as per my feable memory.....and the larger blocks were 25 and 50 pounds. I'll check at Deale where they still make them. In my first two boats I could keep ice for 2-3 weeks if I was careful. The box had six inches of insulation except at the bottom was closer to 9 inches in the boat extending down below the sole. I could keep eggs painted with cooking oil for about 2 months without refrigeration, and 3-4 months with the ice......I didn't try to use it to freeze...just keep things cool so the potatoes, apples carrots etc would last a long time if the box was closed and a insulating blanket was used.
