I removed the one on the LSV as well last summer. Was no much nicer having the extra storage room.

New owner was glad it was gone as well.

I will however CAUTION you... If you run a ballast bag up there you need to figure out a way to mount a L brackit or something.

I was running a 450 bag for a while, and with that plus people siting on that side of the boat, the fiberglass bowed out almost 1/2inch from it normal sitting place. I have to push it back in and get it lined back up to its original place. The cooler is providing some anti-flex to that section of the boat.

Might be as easy as taking some aluminum L brace and epoxy them to the inside wall of that area, or mount it to the under side of the lip and to the floor.
