Caliber 40 Refrigeration overhaul

My 1992 Caliber 40 refrigeration unit has chilled its last beer. I am looking to refit the system, possibly with a water-cooled Frigoboat unit. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Old system - air-cooled motor/compressor in engine room - gets HOT in there and while the system lasted a LONG time, it was rather noisy.


Current plan...

Place condensing unit under port settee run new piping into box. Keeps run to thru hull short and if its as quiet as people say it should work well

Thoughts?

Thanks,
Eric
