Of course, using a freshwater tank as the heat sump for a refrigerator isn't the best idea in the world, since the heat capacity is related to the volume in the tank and the ambient temperature. In hotter climates, where the refrigerator would be working harder, you'd also have a less efficient heat sink, since the water in the tank is hotter to begin with, and that is compounded by the fact that you probably use more water in hotter climates... so as the need for increased heat sink capacity rises, the actual heat sink capacity will probably decrease.

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.
