Default A frig or a safe-not sure

Found this off West Welch Island in 61 feet; really can't tell if it's a safe or a frig; if it's a frig it's built like a tank and would stand at least 5 feet high-that would be some frig; the lower part of this thing has some odd stuff suggesting a frig but a safe could have something similar depending on its level of sophistication.

Yes. It is an old gas refrigerator.

Many pics of them can be found on google.

The center compartments are for ice trays.

Did you find the sandwich I left in there?

was thinking some sort of vending machine but for sure not a safe since it has a compressor in the bottom.

Looks like a fridge to me. Probably being transported to/from an island and fell overboard. In the 50's when people were doing a lot of their own barging in small boats and homemade rafts, that was an occasional event. I remember one that looked like it was made out of aircraft wingtip tanks. Of course, the people who scuttled old boats perhaps did the same with old refrigerators.

My wife saw a boat and dive flags just off the point on Welch she thinks yesterday. Looks like a large fridge. It could have come from most anywhere accident or not. No, we never had a fridge that big nor a gas fridge. Honest!
