On the fly engineering: cold storage for lobsters: a bait freezer, bathtub, vodka and pump

Mike the lobsterman on the on-the-fly engineering a cold holding tank for his lobster catch. You need:

An old bathtub.

Plastic tubing.

Duct tape and spray foam.

A bait freezer.

Connect the insulated tub and the freezer with tubing, run antifreeze - no, vodka - through the line with a pump, and you're done. Mike's subtext of SHTF preparedness (generate your own electricity) happens to be green. He runs the rig off solar power he collects at his dock in Salem, Ma.
