Importance of freezer for cruising?

We have just returned form 3 years of cruising with the luxury of a large refrigerator and separate freezer. I see a lot of discussion on the amp usage. However, our system was coldplate driven. Yes we did have to run the engine 1 hour a day in the tropics. Running the engine did charge the batteries at the same time. An installation like this does take a lot of preperation to do it right. In our case it worked excellent without having a constant draw on the batteries.
