Music cooler for river floating

I want to build a cooler for floating the Guadalupe. Does anyone have any experience with this sort of thing? I was going to put some marine 6x9 speakers in the top of a cooler and use an iPod for the music source. The part I get stuck on is amplifier and battery. I was thinking of using a motorcycle or a powerwheels type of battery but I'm not sure if if they would have enough juice to push an amp for 6 hours or so. I found this guy on ebay that sells these homemade amps that are pretty small and water resistant so I might go that route. Anybody have any experience with these or know where I can get one locally?

build the cooler to the size of a tube ( to sit in ) then you dont have to worry much about weight.

sounds like a badass idea
