Extraordinary Cooler Keeps Adventures Fresh

PacBak Cooler

Dec 21, 2023

Whether boating, fishing, paddling or camping, the PacBak P88-MK Cooler keeps adventures fresh. Built in Alaska (!), this 88 qt. cooler is unlike any other on the market. The Alaskan manufacturer claims it can withstand 24 hours with a 1,250-pound Alaskan Kodiak Brown Bear.

Every design aspect provides optimum functionality, including simultaneously keeping contents both hot and/or cold, an integrated cutting board and a removable table.

The thick insulated walls of the three individual internal compartments of the rotomolded PacBak P88-MK Cooler reliably separate hot from cold and wet from dry. The lid of the smallest 8qt space on top removes to become a cutting board. Underneath is a 22qt section that’s 18.875″L x 9″W x 8″D. The main 58 qt. compartment to the right measures 18.75″L x 14.5″W x 13.25″D. Both bottom sections drain without tilting.

Externally, the removable top becomes a table that attaches to either side of the cooler. Integrated legs fold down to create a massive 10.2sqft work surface. All hardware is stainless steel for outdoor durability, even the bottle openers on both front corners. Rugged strap handles make toting the 65 lb. cooler easier. Measuring just 32.5″L x 22.75″W x18.75″ H overall, it’s ideal for off-grid living for days on end.

With special holiday pricing, the PacBak P88-MK Cooler is US$549. It’s offered in white, seafoam, sky blue, coral, sand, army green, Alaska spring camo and green camo. The ROAM 18-V Portable Vacuum Sealer, which fits perfectly in the smallest 8q. compartment, is $199. Both are available as a Combo for $699. PacBak will soon debut a 60-quart version of its P88-MK Cooler.

Sylvan’s brilliant G3 CLZ DC brings an entirely new level of performance, comfort and versatility to Canadian boaters.

By Craig Ritchie

While Canadians may have been slower to warm to pontoon boats than our southern neighbours, that’s definitely changed as we see more of them gracing our waters every year. The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
