Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!
How do you get in and out of the boat if the ac unit is blocking the hatchway?
It will only block the lower portion of the companionway. I am replacing the two lower companionway slats with this. The top of it will only be 20 inches above the step. In the event of a need for a quick escape, like a fire, it is easily stepped over. I also have a forward hatch that is large enough to exit in an emergency.
The unit will only be in place while docked in my slip. I need the shore power to run it anyway. Gets pretty warm on Lake Mead in the summer and I only anticipate using it while docked.
