Re airconditioning on the hook with solar...

When I was a kid fish shops had water flowing down the glass of the front window keeping the interior cool.

Reticulating water via a small pump through a bladder on deck (say the coach roof) might be able to work in a similar way, couldn't it?

Sea water is always cooler in summer than the ambient temperature.

Would only consume 4 amps/hour when the sun is up.
