[Alberg30] Ice Box Size

Ice Box SizeI used several layers of foil between several layers of foam when I retro fitted #220's icebox. I'd need a control sample to test performance, but the idea is foil stops infrared spectrum heat from penetrating. Especially critical on the engine side and outboard side (I have a black hull). 

I can now go a week easy with about 50 lbs. ice. Make sure you use a gooseneck in the water drain tube.

  I'm currently rebuilding the ice box in Trillium III from the old vertical style with the door to the newer top lid style.  I was wondering if anyone has used foil insulation as well as styrofoam and how it performed.
