It depends on how well they are iced on the boat. If they have an internal temperature of about 45 degrees or less, upon returning to the dock, it will take about 3 days with them on ice to complete rigor. If the internal temperature is about 60 degrees when returning to the dock and then iced, then at some point the next day they may have completed rigor. If not, for sure by the second day. That is what I've come up with so far, still experimenting.
