This week Container Door hits the high seas with an epic veteran of the Hauraki Gulf and owner of Ocean Angler, Paul Senior.
As you'll see we got in amongst a massive work-up and caught a pile of fish! Paul's out fishing two or three times a week at least so this is a salty sea dog who really knows his stuff!
Paul runs us through the importance of storing your catch (once you've landed it!) in a good quality chilly bin with all the right insulation, latches, seals, handles and hinges. Paul's had one of our awesome Container Door tough insulated chilly bins for quite some time so we'll let him tell you why he just loves them so much!
And don't forget to read through a few testimonials from customers below:
I have been using my chilly bin over the summer, and very happy with it. I have actually tested it prior to using it for the first time, as follows: Filled it to the top with normal ice. Put the chilly bin on the deck, part shade part sun. Opened it twice day to check the level of ice. It lasted 11 days, and if i used salt ice, I suspect it would last at least 2 weeks. It is a really sturdy chilly bin, it is good to use as a bench seat as well. - Jacques Dumas
Large durable chilly-bin, useful for those romantic picnics, and doesnt look out of place with the lads on a fishing trip. Very happy with my purchase, will be an item I have for 20+ years. - Jamie Mckenzie
I absolutely love the chilly bin I purchased recently. It is robust, solid and most importantly, keeps the fish, salt ice and beers cold throughout the long summer days on the water. Highly recommended….a great buy! - Brett Down
Received our chilly bin from you guys and immediately thought……I reckon I could get in that…..and I did! It’s a well, made, easy to transport piece of kit that has become indispensable in our camping and holidaying packing! Keeps things cold for days, and the rubber coated latches mean the kids don’t scratch themselves when sitting on it (as we use it for a seat at meal times when camping). - Phil Ison
The Chilly Bin is awesome, we have a caravan and do a lot of camping, up until we purchased this Bin we had a Coleman one but found it didn't keep the ice frozen for very long, this new orange one is the bees knees ice stays frozen it seems forever so thanks very much. - Mike & Sue
We love our Orange Chilly bin! Awesome size for a weeks camping with the family! Keep ice frozen for days. It fits lots of beer and wine for functions! - Kelly McColl
The chilly bin is outstanding! Great quality, ideal size for the boat, keeps the fish on ice all day long. - Ray
Yeah loved the chilli bin took it out for a 4 day weekend over the roar and my 2 litre ice bottles were still icey and all the food still cold. Very happy would have liked a blue one though. - Russel Simmons
