I've got a 90L long box which is pretty good. Keeps salt ice frozen for a few days. It's a bit big for my boat ( a 5.2m ) but it's strong and takes a bit of knocking around.
They are a bit spendy but seem pretty good

Hey Bob I will check out the different ones that we have in the shed, they all seem to be pretty good, good catches and seal around the lid, I like the rubber type catches rather than the chrome clip type, and strong enough lids that you can jump up and stand on without worrying about breaking them.

But in saying that about the steel catches this bin gets a hammering and is as strong as an ox.

Hey Bob just checked some of the chilly bins we use.
I reckon one like our Blue  "Mitre 10" (150 litre) one  like in the photo,  or a Repco Gear-up (120 litre)  would be plenty good enough mate.

Our big 300 litre Icy tech is bloody good, especially with its height etc for using as a seat, but they are definitely not cheap.

Sorry mate, i didnt have any photos of them empty, lol.
That 150 litre Blue bin is as tough as nails  and came from Mitre10, I think they are all pretty good these days, even the smaller 120 lt "Gear-Up" bin from Repco is still going strong after several years of abuse. 
Will add another photo of the Mitre 10 bin just to brighten your day, lol.
