Congrats! Many of us don't have an ice maker. Mine had the small cockpit fridge option rather than the ice maker. It rusted out and I threw it out and put a door in its place to use the area under the bridge steps for storage. 4 Ice cube trays are working just fine for us. One idea some follow is to make no modifications for a year to see how they use the boat. Pretty much what I did (took me more like three years to figure out what I wanted to change).
