Anyone beef up their insulation on a 34/35 icebox? The access seems pretty limited - what did you do?

There's nothing like going to the boat for whatever and to pop the cap on a cool "tinney" from the fridge. Anyway, if one side of the ice box is next to the hull you can bet there's little insulation there so insulating the hull side inside the ice box is a good idea and also the lid. Plan how you load the ice box so you don't have to open the lid so often. Maybe some of the lister's on this forum have some ideas on how they preserve the ice. I forget how I used the newspaper and ice. Someone on this forum gave me that idea and it kind of worked - it was better than just dumping the block in the ice box.I don't want to go the fridge route as I'd have to add more electrical capacity. From the sides of the icebox I can see and the bottom, there's insulation - if there's none on the hull side, maybe I can insulate it on the inside. Ice sure doesn't last long right now.
