Vasco-

The water your system uses wouldn't be all that much warmer, since it isn't re-circulating the same water repeatedly, and adding heat to the same tank of water continuously... If you've lowered the cabin temperature by 10 degrees, you've put all that heat, plus some additional amount for th inefficiencies of the system into the water... If you only have 50 or so gallons to dump the heat into, rather than the billions of gallons avaiable in the ocean... the water will warm up rather quickly.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
