18 Times Boats Doubled As Drink Coolers

An Esky does the job and all… but using one means at least 189 less cool points for you than if you served your drinks out of a flippin’ boat. This is such an ace idea I think if you just got engaged you should invest it one and then just theme the entire rest of the wedding around it. Pastry boats filled with lobster and asparagus? Don’t mind if I do!

Canoes, kayaks, tinnies, sail boats, skiffs – they’re all here. No cool box, bathtub or foam contraption could beat any one of them. They’re all just so darn hunky dory. Like the John Stamos’s Uncle Joey of drink coolers.

As a general rule, it does mean you probably need a lazy boat lying around in order to pull this off. Or I suppose you could make like my friend Harriet and build your own. But think about it – boats are built to be waterproof. Maybe from the outside rather than the inside, but the sentiment stands. They’re the perfect tools for the job.

Fill one with ice, pop in whatever beverages take your fancy and there you have it. Instant party starter. If you’re worried about damaging the innards, you could always fill metal buckets with ice before hauling them into your vessel of choice, like one enterprising person did below. But ice is just frozen water after all, and your boat’s not made of sugar. Unless your boat is made of sugar, in which case… nope. Nada. I can’t think of any reason why you’d have a boat made of sugar. That’s plain silly.

But with summer upon us in about three seconds now, do you know what’s not silly? Boats that double as drink coolers. That shiz is epic.
