I saw a post by Tuna town yesterday and I’ve looked at these in the past on Craigslist but never pulled the trigger. Who has one in their garage and what’s capacity etc? How do you transport large quantities down to the boat ?

Found it, Manitowac, 350lbs/day. When i got it, it was 2 years old and I paid 800 bucks for it back in 2014, it's never needed a thing besides routine cleaning. I have no idea if that's a good deal or not.

Manitowoc 115v air cooled 500 lb 10 years clean it every year and shut down for winter. So far so good. Figure it doesn't owe me a Penny.

Looks like Manitowac is the way to go thanks guys.. was thinking of doing what @diesel does and just run a garden hose to it the day before fishing and then unplug it.. or maybe go to the hockey rink with a bunch of coolers.. I have a monster pelican cooler but it would be a nightmare trying to lug it down the boat every time.. or maybe just use some totes and get it down the boat quick.

I have a Manitowac a bigger one with the outside condenser runs off 240 volt I have had it for 11 years and would never be without my electric bill usually goes up about 20- 30 a month but it stays full all season I don’t miss the chasing down ice or buying ice now my boat never leaves the dock fishing without a full ice box for 800 bucks that’s a awesome deal the lower boxes are not cheap that model the only downside is it will heat up wherever you keep it

I have a Hoshizaki. It’s my second machine. This one makes half moon cubes, uses more power and is slower than I’d like but it works for now. Pretty simple machine to maintain and troubleshoot. Runs on 120V and requires a 30A circuit. My first one made flake ice and ran on 3 phase. It was much cheaper to run actually and filled faster. Ice wasn’t good for cocktails though
