Nokomis5...welcome aboard. Great boat...we have good cruising friends that have one and are just in the process of selling it now, but it has served them well.
On the topic of refrigeration, I would recommend the Sea-Frost BD system as it is quite efficient and easy to install and the folks there are very helpful as you order. bd 12 & 24 volt
I personally have a much larger sea-frost, but have installed a BD-XP unit on a catamaran with dual cold plates and customizing help from the sea frost guys during the order process. Installation went like a charm and the owners are thrilled with the performance in a large combo fridge/freezer box.

The Adler-barbour units also present good value and easy install if you prefer an evaporator design over a cold plate. I've also installed one of those after my attempt at defrosting with a screwdriver resulted in a most distressing hissing sound!
