Default 1900 sport seating - door design mistake - any solution?

Hello

I have a maxum 1900 sport seating and on the left of the engine there is a door with a wet storage tank (that can be used as a cool box). When I try to pull the door to take out the tank, the door can not open all the way up and the tank can not be take out. The only solution was to remove all the screws, remove the door and take it out.

Did you find any other solution?

I have a 2008 1900 SR3. The so called "built in" insulated cooler on mine is in the glove box along side of the stereo. My "wet locker" is at the transom (under transom seat) and while it could act is a cooler I guess, it is meant more for tow ropes, noodles, etc. (no insulation) So, our year models must be designed differently. Sorry can't offer any suggestions but maybe a photo of what you are talking about could help. Good luck.

Do you have a pic? This sounds more like a storage area with drainage. While I'll admit I'm frequently wrong, it sounds like it was never meant to be taken out to begin with. I have two places on my boat that are designed with drainage but neither are removable. Is this a design flaw or a flawed assumption?

Unhappy Same problem

I have a 2006 1900 SR3 with the same "removable" cooler. I have not bothered to remove the screws. I hate the thought of having to epoxy all those screws back in place.
I think it's just bad design on the part of Maxum!
