Nokomis5 is on a distinguished road

Hi - we have a 1981 37' Pacific Seacraft (hull number 5). The refrigeration is getting to be antiquated. What system do the newer boats have - and are you happy with yours. Any recommendation for types of compressors?

Also, I read a really old thread asking about recommendations for readings. I have to highly recommend the two books the W.I.B. Crealock wrote - Vagabonding Under Sail (1951) and Cloud of Islands (1955). They are both out of print but I was able to buy them used via the internet and used books stores. He writes about his sailing trips as a young man - I think these are the trips that inspired his design ideas leading up to the PS 37. He has some fun ideas for rigging small sailboats with square sails and raffee sails - I would love to see a photo of the PS 37 with these sails!
